  Listen to music from traditions as different as the Southern Appalachian Mountains, Eastern Europe and sunny Southern California.   Mountain dulcimer, accordion, guitar, dumbeck, violin, viola, upright bass, spoons, udo and trumpet: it's all here. 

 

 

Take a look at Inlaid and carved dulcimers of unusual shapes and themes from the Big Sur coast of California to the pelican and whale inhabited beaches of Los Angeles.  This is my world and the inspiration for my creations.
