It Is A Hammered Dulcimer





At the Magic City Art Connection, I had to stop and take some photos,  when I spotted this sign. Apparently folks, even here in Alabama, ask a lot of questions about the hammered dulcimer. Now you know!

Apparently, Stanley was tired of answering the question, "What's that instrument."

... of ancient origins... I'm happy to see that there may be re-newed interest in this instrument. Thanks for posting this.

Bon weekend!

My best friend's mother plays the dulcimer, but I've never heard it referred to as 'hammered'... Gorgeous instrument though, I beat it was a treat to hear!

You make me homesick for Arkansas and the sound of hammered dulcimers.

The youngest son of our neighbors when I was growing up, made dulcimers when he became an adult...he was brilliant...when he was just a little, little kid, he would come down and spend hours with my dad pulling apart electrical things and putting them back together...my dad was in awe of his natural abilities.

It gives me a great vibe to see an old gentleman playing the dulcimer in downtown Birmingham. go for it gents.
