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! It's only after you download the music, and listen to the work of these two music greats that the real worth of this album will be evident. It's a tour-de-force of mandolin and mountain dulcimer mastery that even includes what sounds like "bowing" of the dulcimer's drone string by David Schnaufer -- as in "Wayfaring Stranger". What a bargain -- and what listening pleasure! Wow!
Excellent picking, wonderful arrangements, and a total joy to hear over and over.
