ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With this, his 6th CD, Mark Gilston returns to the USA showing how mountain dulcimer can be adapted to play traditional music from all around this great country. In addition to the wonderful traditions of old-time music of Appalachia and the Ozarks, Mark explores the music of the immigrants, particularly from Scandinavia and the British Isles. In addition to playing 7 different dulcimers in various sizes and different tunings, Mark also accompanies himself on guitar and concertina. The music is fun and exciting, and will have you returning to listen time and time again.

Mark Gilston has been performing traditional folk music for over thirty years. His vast repertoire encompasses songs and instrumentals from North America and most of Europe, particularly the British Isles, Scandinavia, and the Balkans. His performances are laced with humor and a wide base of eclectic knowledge. Mark, an award-winning mountain dulcimer player also plays concertina, guitar, banjo, Bulgarian bagpipes, pennywhistle, ocarina, tambura, and others.
He has given concerts at numerous colleges, clubs and coffee houses throughout the United States as well as England and Canada and has been a featured performer and workshop leader for various folk music societies including the New York Pinewoods Folk Music Club and the Folk Song Society of Greater Washington as well as groups abroad. He is currently performing music and living in Austin, Texas.
