Howie Mitchel and his wife sing two parts of this song and play the other two parts on his Appalachian Dulcimer record (and book combo) exploring various things that can be done an a plucked dulcimer vice a hammered dulcimer. This was available from Folk Legacy on vinyl some years ago but I don't know if it ever made the transformation to CD.

This tune was used to demonstrate the "Twicimer" he had constructed, which was two dulcimers on a single body, perhaps made out of part of a hollow cored door. The Patons can probably tell you if they have any plans to reissue this work, or his work on hammmered dulcimers.
