Synopsis

Product Description
Renowned hammered dulcimer player Tony Elman discovered old-time fiddle music during his first year in college in Santa Cruz, California. At a fiddle contest he saw a dying fiddler play his tunes for the last time, and then wandered into a wedding celebration for two young fiddlers... people were singing, dancing, laughing, and the air was filled with joy. Tony realized that he wanted to be a part of this tradition. He soon made a pilgrimage to Appalachia, where he built a hammered dulcimer that he still plays today. Tony's hammered dulcimer recordings have been enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of music lovers around the world.

CD Reviews

Tony Elman - Swinging on a Gate
Karl A. Smith | Ohiio, USA | 06/24/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Received this item several years ago as a gift to take on a long road trip. The soft mellow tones of the dulcimer and the tin whistle help to relax a weary soul. While there are many artists in this genre of music, Tony Elman, in this album, has captured the magic that gives this genre life. Two of my favorites are 'Lost Island' and 'Burning of the Pipers Hut'. I would recomend this album to anyone but especially to those who may be new to this genre."
