Light Into Darkness – February 11, 2018

I had the extreme pleasure of playing with the Cleveland Chinese Music Ensemble on February 11 at the Hudson Public Library (near Cleveland, Ohio). Here is my solo on “Light Into Darkness” — a tune I’ve been tweaking for over a decade now. It’s got sort of a Minimalist – Baroque vibe if you can imagine that: VERY simple, very repetitive, yet always changing and evolving.

Dulcimer History!

Patricia and Wayne have done an incredible job on this podcast! Howie Mitchell is really the first of the more modern builders as well as players of the mountain dulcimer. Howie’s son David Mitchell, who has been archiving Howie’s music and writings for about 8 years now, did a series of interviews with Howie and Patricia Delich & Wayne Jiang of Hearts of the Dulcimer. The result is this very entertaining and informative podcast episode!!
