Welcome to my blog. My name's Andy Young and I'm a hammered dulcimer player in Chicago. I mostly play Traditional Irish and Quebecois music. I also perform on Irish flute, tin whistle, and guitar/vocal. You can check out my music website at

I have a couple goals for this blog. One is to keep friends and folk music fans abreast on my comings and goings, musically speaking. The other is to offer a place to share some of my knowledge about playing the hammered dulcimer to other players. I certainly don't claim to be the end all player, but in the spirit of the digital-aural tradition I thought it would be a good thing to pass on what I've learned.

I also kind of hope this becomes a place for me to receive some feedback on performances and generate interesting dialogue about traditional music, the hammered dulcimer and other things.

Thanks for stopping by.

Howdy! found you via Technorati. I'm also a dulcimist, though my blog has a lot about other things besides the music business.

Hi Marcy,
Glad you found me. Yeah, this blog is sort of an experiment. I like the idea of an easy way to post follow up stuff after gigs, news, etc. We'll see how it takes off. Thanks for stopping by.
