CTO ... Andy Young Making a Special Appearance in Black Mountain, NC

Chicago-based hammered dulcimer phenomenon, Andy Young, will be teaching and performing at Jerry Read Smith's beautiful studio, Perelandra , in Black Mountain, NC, just east of Asheville next weekend, May 17/18. I've been hearing rave reviews and would dearly love to be in attendance, but life is conspiring against it. I hope some of you will be able to go and tell me all about it!

Take advantage of this rare event.  Here's what you're in for:

"Andy Young’s virtuosic hammered dulcimer takes the spirited Gypsy Swing of Django Reinhardt in an exciting new direction. Never before have you heard the dulcimer played like this, transporting you at once to Jazz Age Paris and the Gypsy encampments of the dulcimer’s ancestry. Andy’s performances infuse traditional Irish, Quebecois, and Gypsy Jazz melodies with humor and insight to provide a deep understanding of the role of music in our multicultural and interpersonal world."  ~ Gebhard Woods Dulcimer & Traditional Music Festival

"I strongly recommend seeing Andy play if you're not familiar with him. He's one of my favorites and I'm wearing out his latest CD." ~ Randy Marchany of No Strings Attached
