Thank you for stopping by!I travel and perform on the Hammered Dulcimer at Rennaisance fairs, Celtic festivals, Steampunk events and house concerts. I perform solo as well as with several different combinations of accompanists. Previously, I formed several bands including Jig to a Milestone and Dancing Hammers.
The hammered dulcimer has an incredible quality and ability to reach people, the instrument harkens back to an earlier age. Hammered dulcimer has opened up the world to me, it gives me a reason, a passion to share and experience music with others.
I believe strongly in sharing the instrument's culture and history all while making it accessible to the modern world. I played the solo to Hotel California in a dirty bar in Gainesville, FL. I played Irish jigs in a church in Big Rapids, MI. I played the theme for Tetris in Fairburn, GA while dressed as a 17th Century Romanian. What ever floats your boat!
Give me a chance to show you what it is all about! Let's see where we can go together!
