believes in bringing mountain dulcimer to the general public through songs that the public already knows and loves. He'll play anything from swing to Scruggs-style to Gilbert & Sullivan, folk music, and especially a wide range of rock and pop music. His covers of songs by Led Zeppelin and the Ramones went viral, and his video of Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" is shown in Arizona's renowned Musical Instrument Museum. Sam embraces diatonic, 0+/1+/8+, and chromatic dulcimers – acoustic and electric. He performs and teaches at festivals around the country and cyberspace.
needs no introduction to many of us, and as always, we're delighted to have her coming back to our festival. Susan sings eloquently of the things in our lives that really matter: songs of home, hills, farms, and small town America. Her skill on mountain dulcimer, guitar, and banjo is amazing (as well as award-winning), her humor is warm and uplifting, and her teaching has touched many of us in ways beyond measure. She lives right here in the Albany area, but the Appalachian Mountains are in her heart and in her music.
