The best kept secret in music


"Traditional Notes, June 7, 2006"

Excerpts from Dick Glasgow's column:
In Ballycastle, ...it was the first time for many, many years, possibly ever, that no fewer than three Hammered Dulcimers were heard being played together in the same room! A champion player, Rick Davis, who had travelled all the way from North Carolina, entertained us all with his wonderful musicianship on a beautifully crafted modern chromatic Dulcimer....

- Ballymoney Times, Co. Antrim, No. Ireland


"Of Things To Come..." is Rick Davis's debut CD. A recording of bare-bones hammered dulcimer music, most of this CD is just what you'd hear Rick playing at the Farmer's Market on a Saturday, for instance. It's not full of fancy or clever production techniques (not that Rick dislikes those), but it is full of good ole tunes played on the hammered dulcimer. The selection of tunes represents different types of music Rick currently plays: Traditional music from America (Old-Time), Ireland, Scotland and Brittany, and a couple of his own original tunes thrown into the mix.
"Of Things To Come..." is included in rotation on Sweetwater Folk internet radio play from time to time. Please see:


Feeling a bit camera shy


Championship hammered dulcimer player Rick Davis sees his job as learning the tunes of the "old-timers" from various musical traditions and passing them on. Rick is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and international performer and teacher, who, over the years, has played various styles of music ranging from Classical to Folk, Liturgical to Rock and Roll. His latest instrumental focus is on the hammered dulcimer which has inspired increasing interest in traditional Old-Time, Irish, Scottish, Breton and English music. Rick has studied music at Florida State University and with such dulcimer notables as Karen Ashbrook, Ken Kolodner, Sam Rizzetta, Maggie Sansone, Steve Schneider and Rick Thum.
