Enjoy an evening of dulcimer music from the tutors on the 2019 Dulcimers workshop. A real treat from experts in the instrument from the US.
Butch Ross, from Chatanooga, Tennessee, is a mountain dulcimer maestro who has played everything from Back to Radiohead, breaking through the supposed limitations of this humble Appalachian instrument. A patient, inspiring teacher, he’s also an in-demand performer, taking the dulcimer to new places. he needs no introduction to Nonsuch members.
Rick Thum, from Missouri, is widely influential in the hammered dulcimer world, as teacher, performer and now maker. He brings a combination of passion and accessibility to his workshops and is equally happy at a late night jam. He is a favourite on the US festival scene.
Thomasina Levy, from Connecticut is an award winning, internationally recognised mountain dulcimer player, singer, poet and song writer whose performances weave together the best of traditional and contemporary folk music. A former State Troubadour and now music educator she is well placed to discover the music that is in all of us.
Matthew Dickerson, from South Carolina, was the 2012 national Hammered Dulcimer Champion and is now a successful and popular full-time musician, playing in a variety of styles and genres. he performs and teaches across the US and is now making his first visit to the UK.
