Master of Mountain Dulcimer, Vol 1

Masters of Mountain Dulcimer Vol 1: Various Artists

This anthology is a who's who of dulcimer greats. Most of these people have been playing for at least 20 years, some for 50. A showcase of dulcimer techniques, styles and repertoire covering traditional American, British Isles and contemporary styles, we recommend this both as an overview for new players and as a treat for dulcimer sophisticates.

Song For Grandpa

Song For Grandpa: Scott Odena

Scott Odena: mountain dulcimer, guitar, banjo, mandolin, vocals

Although Scott plays all the instruments on this recording, the focus is definitely on the mountain dulcimer. As a clawhammer banjo player, he's able to capture banjo licks and integrate the style into his mountain dulcimer playing. How?... by using a flat pick and lots of hammer-ons and pull offs. In addition to sparkling fiddle tunes, there are wonderful old time Track List, some Irish melodies and a sprinkling of Scott's original works for dulcimer.

Mountain Dulcimer

Mountain Dulcimer: Stephen Seifert

Stephen Seifert plays 21 traditional tunes from the southern mountains and beyond......yes, indeed! A young player and protegé of David Schnaufer, he gets inside the dulcimer as well as the tune. He shows great respect for the genre, carefully crafts each arrangement, then lays back and plays the dickens out of it. Skill, control, finesse, dexterity, that's our boy! If you love great mountain dulcimer playing and the old time fiddle tune repertoire, get this CD.
