I was honored to be one of the artists that Wayne Jiang and Patricia Delich interviewed for their Hearts of the Dulcimer podcast episode on early music and the mountain dulcimer. In this interview, I share deeply the sources of my inspirations, my personal connection with early music, and my approach to playing and adapting early music with the mountain dulcimer. To hear more episodes in this podcast, please visit dulcimuse.com.
It was a delight to be able to speak in greater depth about what inspiration and influences have contributed to my music-making, especially on my most recent album "Faerie Memories." Many thanks to Victoria Thomas for taking the time to discuss these themes with me!
