With Special Guests: Ken Kolodner (Hammered Dulcimer), Stefan George (Guitar) & Janne Irvine (Piano)
Featuring Spanish Classical & Latin Folk Melodies on the Hammered Dulcimer.
A beautiful and refreshingly new instrumental album for the world music market. A unique instrument for the classical listener and a wonderful new style for the hammered dulcimer.
Anna Duff is from Sonoran desert of the Southwest. She has been playing and teaching the hammered dulcimer for the past 15 years throughout Arizona and the U.S. She was the "Hammer" part of the duo Arm & Hammer, which released five recordings and received a Tucson Area Music Award in 1998 for Best Folk Ensemble.
With the new millennium she began a career as a solo hammered dulcimer artist performing Spanish Classical & Latin Folk music. She has just released her new Spanish Solo recording "Dulcianna: A Southwest Dulcimer" with guest accompanist Ken Kolodner.
