3. Hammered Dulcimer players in Ireland: Photos!

I thought it might be useful to gather up a collection of photos, showing some of the Hammered Dulcimer players who are helping to keep the tradition alive, here in Ireland.

This is me, at one of my weekly Pub Sessions, doing my bit to keep the Irish Hammered Dulcimer tradition alive.

Unfortunately, it takes me all my time to make my Breakfast, never mind a musical instrument, so I bought the best sounding Hammered Dulcimer I could find, by Rick Thum in America.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here's a SLIDESHOW of photos of the Hammered Dulcimer in action today, mostly taken in Co. Antrim.
