Hammered Dulcimer Arrangements by Ruth

 

Hammered Dulcimer being played with hammers

"Ruth is one of the rarer exceptions in the dulcimer world. She plays with such feeling and expression. Her arrangements are a mirror of the emotion and personality that she puts into her music. When you hear her play you can visualize the setting she is portraying. A real touch of class that anyone would be proud to emulate.”
—Rick Thum
