"I Celebrate Life--Neal Walters"

"...Steve is a superb dulcimer player by any standard, a positive and giving person and a first-rate composer with a unique knack of writing tunes that fit the instrument perfectly. I Celebrate Life is his magnum opus, and I recommend it highly." - Dulcimer Players News

"a piece of it all"

The moniker "toe tapping Folkgrass" is indeed an appealing description for the music on this album and inclues the crossover from folk into county and back." - Blue Boogie CD Review (Belgium)

"a piece of it all"

"Oh man, oh man, oh man! From now on when you think of world-class dulcimer talent, multi-instrumentalist, folk music social consciousness, and great sense of humor you'll have to think of two people John McCutcheon and Steve Eulberg. Eulberg truly does have "a piece of it all" in his newest release by the same name. " - Jim Babcock

"a piece of it all"

Steve Eulberg’s “A Piece Of It All” (Owl Mountain Music) has a very traditional feel though, generally, the arrangements are more modern and this blend of traditionalism and modernity really works. Steve tackles a few thorny issues in these 13 songs and there might be the odd one that makes some listeners a little uncomfortable as he holds forth on subjects like political, religious and ethnic intolerance, changing moral values, social injustice, human relationships simple and complex and conflicting emotions. Accompanying Steve’s vocals on what I suppose is a social commentary is his own guitars and mountain and hammered dulcimers with Anne Lindsay (fiddle), Chris Whiteley (brilliant harmonica!), Ken Whiteley (mandolin, accordion and a variety of keys), George Koller (bass) and Brad Hart (drums). The programme includes the achingly beautiful “Sad”, a superb revival of the traditional “Careless Love” (just catch that harmonica, mandolin and guitar), the wonderful journey to discover oneself in “I Was Lost” and
the spiritual “Beauty In The World”. - Pete Smith's Reviews

Award-winning multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, Steve Eulberg, weaves mountain and hammered dulcimers with guitar, percussion, keyboard and a variety of unusual instruments to create thought-provoking, smile-inducing, toe-tapping acoustic experiences. He has sung and composed for religious communities, union halls, picket lines, inter-faith retreats, mountain-top youth camps, as well
as the more familiar venues: clubs, coffeehouses, bookstores, festivals and showcase concerts.
He has composed commissions for choral work and symphonic works featuring dulcimers and Australian didjeridu; and composed and recorded the original soundtrack for a DVD by Positive Communication entitled "Serenade to the Canada Goose."
Of Anglo-Celtic and German Heritage, he is a member of Local 1000 AFM who passionately believes that music builds community across cultural barriers. His innercity work with African-American, Latino and working-class folks has been an important crucible for his artistry.

He has been influenced by the fiddlers of his youth, the Americana of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, the contemporary artistry of John McCutcheon, Kim McKee, Tom Paxton, Karen Mueller, Bryan Bowers, Susan Trump and Heidi Muller, the blues power of B.B. King, Lightning Hopkins and Robert Johnson.

Eulberg has won five prizes in the National Mountain Dulcimer Championship and three times been a finalist in the National Hammered Dulcimer Championship in Winfield, Kansas.
