CTO … Weird Hammered Dulcimer Connection to the "Cups" Song

I admit that I'm fascinated by the "Cups" Song. My nieces and nephews taught me how to do it over the holidays. Click here to see our slow-motion version.

But what, you ask, is the Cups Song? Where have you been?!

Check This Out: for everything you need to know about the Cup Song. It's been around longer than you might think. Take note of this cool fact … the cup routine itself has been attributed to the late contemporary Christian singer / songwriter, and hammered dulcimer player, Rich Mullins. It began as a rhythmic accompaniment for his 1987 song "Screen Door". A video of the a cappella version can be found at the midnight music link above, along with some of the best renditions of "Cups" currently found on the web.
