Folkcraft Instruments


I worked for Folkcraft Instruments very briefly in 1994 upon first moving to Florida.  It had been almost ten years since first falling in love with the Appalachian mountain dulcimer and suddenly I was playing and selling them every day at a little kiosk at Walt Disney World.  Needless to say, I was blown away by the clarity of tone, the volume and sustain, the beauty of the craftsmanship and many of my paychecks went right back into the company in exchange for dulcimers.

Fast forward 14 years to when company president Richard Ash made me a wonderful offer: an endorsement. 

The people at Folkcraft believe in tradition.  Not just the way things have been but also how they're going to be.  They're a cutting-edge group of craftsmen that are building on a rich heritage of instrument-making while listening closely to what people are looking for in an heirloom-quality creation.  Several of their innovations have debuted while I've been back on board with the company as a spokesperson and dealer; it's exciting to see the development and immensely satisfying to play the results. 

That's why I'm proud to say that I'm a Folkcraft artist.   Get your hands on one of these amazing instruments and you'll see what I mean!
