Album Notes
Village Strings is a traditional music group composed of musicians from southeastern Michigan. Although the hammered dulcimer is the featured instrument, a variety of other instruments are also played on its debut album— dulciborn, mandolin, fiddle, harmonica, penny whistle, concertina, tambourine, spoons, shakers, tenor banjo, banjola, guitar and bass. Most of the musicians play several instruments, crafting a layered sound changing from calming to upbeat in a way that invites audiences to stomp their feet, clap their hands and maybe even dance a jig.

The band was started in 2006 with 2 musicians and has built in number since then. Thirteen musicians are featured on this album, and for some tunes, five hammered dulcimers are playing all at once. The group has performed at many venues in both Michigan and Ohio, often in vintage style dress as seen in their album photo.

The album “Village Strings Timeless Traditions” wonderfully evokes the upbeat sound of this band. The group plays 15 tracks on this recording, creating a delightful mix of Traditional, Celtic, Irish and Folk music that keeps traditional music alive.
