A Mountain Dulcimer Christmas Released

I hope it's okay for me to post this here, but I wanted to let all the dulcimer players nearby know, before Christmas is past, about this music. You can listen to songs from the EP at www.lindasack.com or www.myspace.com/lindasack. I would love to hear how you like it.My new EP, "A Mountain Dulcimer Christmas," was just released! It includes seven of the most beautiful melodies of all time, including…See More

"Angela, thank you so much for getting the word out. I'm working up "You are My Flower" (AP Carter -- a great arrangement is on the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band CD) and am excited about tomorrow."

About Me:
I'm a MOUNTAIN dulcimer player and singer, (appalachian, lap dulcimer) and love to play old-time, old country, bluegrass, celtic, classical music. I play baritone dulcimer and standard dulcimer, and sing as well. I had the privilege of studying, through the Blair School of Music in Nashville, with dulcimer legend and dear friend, David Schnaufer for 11 years, and am in the ensemble he brought together and directed, the Nashville Dulcimer Quartet. Also play in an old-time/bluegrass string band, the Corn Pone Stars, based in Nashville, TN as well. I have played and sung for countless folks awaiting heart transplants and cancer treatments (my favorite audiences), and also on stages throughout this side of the country and in N. Ireland, indluding Nashville Public Radio's Live in Studio C program, Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour, Nashville's Celebration of Cultures, pubs and cafes, dulcimer festivals, private parties and weddings, and more. I love to share the dulcimer with people who have never heard or seen it, and I love entertaining people with songs from the mountains and the South. My very first solo CD is about to be released, with a CD release concert January 24.

Welcome! Please join the dulcimer group by clicking on GROUPS at the top of the page? Our last dulcimer jam of the year is tomorrow night, Wednesday, December 16, 2008, 6:30 - 8:30.

You might find it refreshing. Although tab is welcome, we encourage people to leave it at home. We start with one or two medium difficulty tunes played many slow times. We move on to moderate jamming. The last 45 minutes or so is generally hard and fast. The whole idea is to get people's ears going. Please come if you can!

I love listening to Brian's CD's but After seeing a live concert, I realized that he is truly one of the best Irish fiddlers there is in the world! He plays so flawlessly with great technique so musically. I liked it that he talks to…See More
