Unique and Traditional at the same time

If your looking for this unique combination of instruments, you have found a gem. I was intrigued by a sample of the Appalacian Dulcimer and found this duet of old timey instruments. Enjoy anytime!


If ever there was a case of iTunes previews not demonstrating the true value of an album, this is it!

What a bargain -- and what listening pleasure! Wow!

Highly recommended

Excellent picking, wonderful arrangements, and a total joy to hear over and over.
