ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mark Gilston has been playing traditional folk music on the mountain dulcimer for over 35 years. In this CD he brings the wonderful sounds of the late English Renaissance to the sparkling technique of the dulcimer through interpretations of the English Country Dance tunes published by John Playford in 1651.

"Mark stands alone in his astounding ability to adapt world roots music to the mountain dulcimer. He uses all five fingers of his left hand to effectively combine melody and chords like no other." - Stephen Seifert

"Mark Gilston is a lap dulcimer virtuoso...now there's two words you don't often hear used together in the same sentence." - Alan Freeman

"You make such outstanding contributions to the mountain dulcimer." - Lois Hornbostel
