I first heard and saw about the hammered dulcimer on a tv show and it never left me. It’s a real Medieval throwback, a bit like a cross between a harp, a piano and a xylophone. I’d love to learn how to play one, but unfortunately I can’t seem to find anyone in Lincolnshire who teaches.
I’ve found a lovely musician via YouTube called dizzi who plays some beautiful tunes. One of my favourites is called Mermaid.
