The hammered dulcimer is an ancient and enchanting instrument. Mine is an exquisite 96 sting 4 1/2 octave grand concert master. The strings are sounded my hitting them with small wooden hammers resulting in a wonderful sustained tone on long notes and percussive techniques resulting in speed and agility for embellishments. My repertoire includes beautiful Celtic Airs, Scottish and Irish Jigs and Reels, Classical and ancient pieces. Whether your wedding is in a church, a private chapel, or outside garden, the hammered dulcimer brings an elegant and unique sound your friends will admire!
