Wow! It's both mountain dulcimer players and hammer dulcimer players together! I didn't think it could happen! lol I play mountain dulcimer myself...

We used to see a hammered dulcimer player, Glenn Morgan I think his name is, at the Renaissance Faire in Novato in the early 90's. Saw him playing downtown at Fishermans Wharf once too. I think we have a couple of his tapes. Great stuff.

It looks like there's an autoharp in one of those pictures? And, if I'm not mistaken, a descant recorder...!

I'm amused by the difference in terminology - what the other commenters are calling a "hammer" dulcimer, I know as the English dulcimer, while the "mountain" dulcimer is known to me as the Appalacian dulcimer.
