ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A native of the Shenandoah Valley, Phyllis Gaskins traces her roots through traditional Irish, Scottish and American music. This album is exceptional considering the noter style dulcimer played as a solo instrument is very rare. Recorded with no gimmicks, this recording exemplifiers the pure beauty, simplicity and natural sound of the mountain dulcimer. Combining many tune forms from reels to polkas, accompanied by fiddle, claw hammer banjo, mandolin, and the bodhran (Irish drum), Phyllis Gaskins performs with the depth and sensitivity of a seasoned artist. This recording is as timeless as it is diverse. After a few listens it will become one of your favorite recordings.
