About this event:
One of today's most sought-after hammered dulcimer players, Andy Young, performs Gypsy swing, accompanied by Al Tauber on guitar. While the hammered dulcimer is not typically thought of as a jazzy instrument, thanks to Young's mastery of it, the resulting sound, with Tauber's skilled accompaniment, blends traditional Gypsy melodies and Parisian influence with the American jazz and swing songbook.
