During my first Renaissance Fair in Tuxedo, NY, which was really somewhat of a recognizance mission, I stumbled upon a very classy musician named Vince Conaway, “Vincenco”, I like to call him. You couldn’t walk by without feeling the soothing and captivating sounds coming from his hammered dulcimer instrument he was playing. It’s a unique sound that only that instrument can produce by someone with many years of practice. I learned about the hammered dulcimer while in the French Quarter in New Orleans a couple years earlier, so I appreciated and gravitated toward that unique sound immediately. Vince was graciously willing to create a personalized birthday greeting video for me and with no monetary strings attached, no pun intended. I returned the gesture with a generous tip and bought one of his CD’s that had many of his own compositions on it. I listen to it when I need to unplug and unwind from the daily entrepreneur grind.
