Aaron hails from Tallahassee, FL. In 2004 Aaron made the cut to the final five and he was surprised he did because he was so sick. He has been playing the dulcimer for eight years or so. He came back this year because he had the opportunity to get a ride back to Winfield with a friend. In addition to the mountain dulcimer he also plays mandolin and something called the banjola. Aaron chose a 4FHKK Custom Mountain Dulcimer from The Dulcimer Shoppe/McSpadden Mountain Dulcimers of Mountain View, AR.
