Welcome! Here is a full array of information, performance details, instruction offerings and merchandise for fans, listeners and musicians, and everyone who loves the hammered dulcimer and autoharp. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your visit. And come back often! More information is added periodically.
I’ve been performing on the dulcimer since 1978, adding diatonic autoharp in 1990. Check out where I’m playing next, and preview a concert program. Church music is a specialty, too; in addition to prelude and offertory music, I improvise to hymns played on the organ while the congregation sings. Need music for a special occasion?

New to the site, as of March 17, 2015, is my Blog, a place where I talk about new discoveries in teaching or mostly anything that’s music-related. Feel free to bookmark the Blog to catch up with what’s on my mind (which won’t tell you how many times I tie my shoelaces each day).
For the shopper in you, visit The Marketplace, where you can purchase listening-for-pleasure goodies and great instructional materials.
As the only dulcimer accompanist of choirs in the state of Colorado, and one of a handful nationally, I’m eager to connect with choral conductors around the country.
Visit my choral music page, and be sure to check out my article in the September 2002 issue of The Choral Journal.

I saw you perform one evening in Mountain Home, Arkansas back in the spring of 1991. We had a brief conversation then. You and your music has remained in my memory ever since. Thanks for the wonderful music.
We were at Westminster together in the early 70s! So nice to see you turn up. Wow, WCC grads have turned up in all kinds of interesting places, but your autoharp and dulcimer specialty is a new one! All the best to you.
I am arranging three settings of the Skye boat song.
The second setting is in Ab major and the 3rd setting is in Eb major.
Both arrangements require come chromaticism.
Do you play a fully chromatic dulcimer?
Andrew Le Vasseur
I do not play a fully chromatic dulcimer, although there’s been a tone of chromaticism in my ear for decades.
I take it you need help somehow? Tell me more. Lucille
Hi Cille! A flashback from your past. Dale Hukill here. Have thought about you often through the years. Looks like life had been good for you. Sometime we should catch up.
