Here are three videos from the 2015 Pipers Gathering, impromptu playing of pipes and dulcimer

It was held in Litchfield Ct. The people that put in on did a great job! Thank you Morgan, Chris, Thomas, Circo and Steven and the rest of the board. This was one of those bucket list type events for me. To bad there isn't something like this on the west coast. They had great instructors and vendors. Overall a good time!

I love playing SSPs and uilleann pipes along with Hammer Dulcimer. Such a great sound.

Have a look for the John Rea and Sean Mcaloon recordings on iTunes.
I'm sure its quite inexpensive.
Rea is the master of hammered dulcimer in Irish traditional music.
I used to kinda dislike the instrument till I heard Rea as most of the players I had heard in the US were not on the same level.
Never heard one in a session that I thought added to the music as they were mostly just played by beginners or the like.

Interestingly after seeing a few for sale locally in Glasgow I found out that there was a tradition of building them in the shipyards.
They played a local repertoire obviously of Scottish tunes but also popular tunes.
all the best,
Patrick

There are some great players here in the USA. Locally we have Patty Amelotte, a session regular, who makes her living performing and teaching the instrument.
