What to Expect
Quiet soothing background music, perfect for small parties and gatherings, historical events, etc.
I am a very traditional Noter & Drone style player. Founding member of EverythingDulcimer dot com and Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. I play primarily background music - few if any vocals - unamplified so that guests are not overwhelmed by the sound (the dulcimer is a very quiet instrument in any case). My repertoire includes a lot of Scottish and Irish tunes, American folkmusic, and Early European (but not classical) music from the 1500s, 1600s etc.
Additional Booking Notes
Need nothing more than an armless chair.
