Mary  -  hammered dulcimer - main instrument, then drums, guitar, pia

Mary

Mary Sparks

I've been playing the hammered dulcimer for ten years and it is truly the voice of my spirit. Having performed in some manner for most of my life, it was with great pleasure that I discovered the dulcimer along the way. As a hammered dulcimer player I've performed in various venues...from coffee houses to large auditoriums, weddings to art gallery events. I've also been asked to appear on other's CDs and my music is featured in a local documentary on sustainable farming and a tourism video. Each performance is unique in that I play all original music, much of which is improvised and created on the spot...often influenced by the energy in the moment. My style of playing could be considered classical with a new-age/Celtic influence. For a listing of Asheville, NC venues played, please feel free to contact me.

Flat Mountain Dulcimers, also Dolce Dulcimers

I play with Flat Mountain Dulcimers, a trio which is mainly two Mountain Dulcimers and a guitar, however we also use a mandolin, cello, and occasionally other instruments. Most of our music is traditional, but you never know what we might do!

We do both straight concerts and also educational programs discussing the history of the dulcimer and the people who traditionally played it.

I could do a solo mountain dulcimer concert if that is your preference, but the band is more fun!

Paul is Louisiana's premier mountain dulcimer player and has done much for the dulcimer's presence in his home state. His lyrical touch on the dulcimer enables him to interpret a diversity of styles of music: Mardi Gras, ragtime, classical, Celtic, pop and traditional American folk music. His introduction to the dulcimer was on vacation in Mountain View, AR. He later won and placed in several dulcimer contests there, culminating in the 1994 Texas State Championship. He founded the Bayou Dulcimer Club and is credited as the creator of the highly successful Mardi Gras Dulcimer Festival in Covington, LA. An author of three dulcimer books and a CD entitled ���Dixieland Dulcimer Favorites,�۝ Paul teaches and performs at festivals throughout the South.
