Hammer Dulcimer Played by Chet Parker

Hammer Dulcimer Played by Chet Parker

Released in 1966, when the hammer(ed) dulcimer's future was uncertain, this album features medleys of mostly old time fiddle tunes played on this psaltery-like instrument. Chet Parker lived in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he was involved in the "Old Dulcimer Players' Club," a group devoted to preserving and enjoying the tones of the dulcimer.
