The secret catalyst on this recording is Walt Michael and his unique hammered dulcimer. Walt is the most lyrical master of the hammered dulcimer alive today. Listen carefully, thoughtfully to his playing and you'll be rewarded with exceptional insight into how music moves people. As you listen to these lovely pieces of music, allow Walt to sweep you away on his magic-carpet of musical honesty.' --Bill Troxler, from his liner notes 'Walt Michael's hammered dulcimer playing puts him out front in the revival of this ancient instrument which has been going on for some years. If there is anyone who has brought the hammered dulcimer to the considerable level of favor it enjoys among bluegrass and old-timey audiences, it's Walt Michael.' --Bluegrass Unlimited 'Walt Michael is a hammered dulcimerist of uncommon power.' --Frets Magazine With Tom McCreesh (fiddle, vocals), Tony Trischka and Marty Cutler (banjos) and others. Includes music used for the closing ceremonies of the 13th Winter Olympics.
