Carolyn discovered the dulcimer in 1980 when she saw Sally Rogers in concert at The Sounding Board in West Hartford. An accomplished folk guitarist at the time, she just couldn’t figure out what to do with this beautiful, sweet sounding instrument with so few strings More than 30 years later, she found The CT Mountain Dulcimer Gathering in Colchester, and was shocked at how easy the instrument is to play. She has been playing ever since, and loves the many voices of the dulcimer, playing roots, blues, classical, ethnic music, lullabies, as well as the music of contemporary musicians. Two of her own songs have been featured in Dulcimer Players News, a magazine and CD for dulcimer enthusiasts with an international distribution. As a performer, songwriter, teacher, and therapeutic musician, she is passionate about “spreading the dulcimer gospel”, taking great joy in introducing this beautiful original American folk instrument to others.
