What is Hammer Dulcimer?

Hammer Dulcimer is what happens when a harp, piano, & acoustic guitar all come together. An ancient instrument thought to originate in Egypt, it's sound is enjoyed by many cultures, from Eastern Europe into Appalachia.


Mike specializes in Celtic, Americana, and New-Age stylings.

The unobtrusive yet complex sound of Hammer Dulcimer is the perfect backdrop for todays gatherings.
