Hammered Dulcimer music to enjoy
I am a great enthusiast for the hammered dulcimer, even to the extent of having one of my own which I'm trying to learn how to play. This group in America have a few other acoustic instruments but they mostly are hammered dulcimers. I think it's a joyful sound - they are playing a medley of tunes: Ragtime Annie, Soldier's Joy and Golden Slippers at a centenary celebration of the Model T Ford. Hence the reason for the fashion statement! As an antidote to the frequent bad news around I hope you enjoy this music.
