Album Notes
No matter where you find yourself this Christmas season, the masterful and magical touch of Joshua Messick’s hammered dulcimer music will transport you to places of hope, joy, wonder, and love: Majestic mountaintops where snowflakes whirl wildly and mysteriously around you. A dusty den where one candle still glows and well-worn stockings embrace childhood memories. A vast, lonely desert where stars guide and comfort you through their ancient, ebony skies. A crowded city street where sounds shift into song and strangers smile like friends. Where once again, the whole world sounds as it should: Sweet, soft, sacred, and sublime.

Hammered Dulcimer Info
Joshua plays the Jerry Read Smith 5-Octave Grande Concertmaster with Dampers Hammered Dulcimer. Joshua created these arrangements during his stay at Jerry Read Smith’s Perelandra Studio in Asheville, NC, and he customized the songs to use the 5-octave range. The hammered dulcimer is presented with acoustic authenticity without overdubs or digital effects.

Special Thanks
Mom and Dad, Thank you for the Christmas memories that helped inspire this album. Jerry Read Smith, Thank you for believing in me. Max Dyer, Your cello music is inspirational and healing in my life.
