I notice that there is a thread concerning Appalachian mountain dulcimer music.Could you also name some masters of the hammered dulcimer? I have heard it once or twice and loved the sound.

There are actually a lot of players. Of course there is John McCutcheon, Sam Rizzetta, Bill Spence, Maggie Sansone, Brenda Hunter, Russell Cook, Robin Petrie, Kendra Ward.................and then you can find local players all over the place at folk type events or on street corners in restored villages and the like.........

Classic HD joke: Do you know how to keep a HD in tune?
                        (Nobody does)
         
That's a start.

If you are talking about the Uk then Maclaine Colston is excellent

Mac starts playing at 4 minutes into the song. Just Lovely.

I also love Dizzi, who Mac put me on to.

Listen to this by Dizzi. Just lovely.

UK: Jenny Coxon from the NW of England (Rising Sun Band etc.) is a lovely player.
Reg Reader in Suffolk is a living link with a tradition of HD playing in East Anglia exemplified by Billy Benington. Reg has been teaching his grandson Tom Knight to play and he's doing well now.

Elsewehere in the world, look for Indian santoor players and the related Hungarian Cimbalom - it's a ubiquitous instrument in its many forms.

Again in the UK, Chris Coe carries on the style she learned from the late Jimmy Cooper from Glasgow.

There's some fairly grubby footage on YouTube from

A documentary on Sowerby Bridge featuring me with more hair and Pete Coe with a perm

and also from the EATMT day at Stowmarket
