An exciting new mountain dulcimer recording featuring nineteen different artists all of whom have taught and performed at Redwood Dulcimer Day. Many of the compositions were recorded just for this compilation and a number of the tracks are from recordings that are no longer available.

This versatile new collection features ragtime, old time, Irish, Scottish, Israeli, and Brazilian music. There are dance tunes from the French countryside, the English Renaissance, Appalachia, and the Shetland Islands. 
There are new compositions with inflections of Native American, Scandinavian, Baroque and Cowboy music, not to mention a little Joni Mitchell vibe. Whether you fancy elegant finger-style or crazy-good flat-picking, this CD has it, and there is even a little “slide” dulcimer! Enjoy over an hour of tasty dulcimer treats! Plus many of the tunes feature guest artists on other instruments, ranging from cello to melodeon, English horn, electric guitar, nyckelharpa, whistle, harp, hammered dulcimer, guitar, flute and more.
