CD Reviews

Great!
07/11/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Since I play the hammered dulcimer I am a big fan of Maggie Sansones music.This CD is very diverse, from guitar solos to slow dances, although most of these are reels that make you want to tap your feet to the rythm. Some have interesting percussion instruments such as bones, dombek and finger cymbals. If you enjoy any hammered dulcimer music you'll enjoy this CD and her other hammered dulcimer music CD, Mist & Stone."
Perfection!

"I know NOTHING about the hammered dulcimer but I do know great music when I hear it. This is perfection. The 23 tracks on this double CD offer a range of selections showcasing the talents of Maggie and her group."
