CD Offers   

Silver Strings is proud to offer 2 digitally mastered CD's for your enjoyment.  These CD recordings were made in response to many requests from appreciative listeners during performances at various venues.  Silver String's debut recording is entitled Silver Strings Dulcimer Society and was released in February 1999.  It consists of upbeat traditional old time string band music played on the hammered dulcimer as well as other acoustic instruments, such as the mountain dulcimer, guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, autoharp, recorder, harmonica and string bass.  All of the tunes on this recording are typical of the tunes played at club meetings and at music jams throughout the Michigan region.  Since the beginning of the hammered dulcimer revival in the 1970's, Michigan players have been rekindling the interest in this almost forgotten but beautiful sounding instrument.  At the close of the 2008 holiday season, a second CD was recorded entitled Holiday Tradition.  This CD consists of traditional Christmas and festive holiday tunes.  It was released in October 2009.  Below is a list of the tunes on each CD.  Several of the tunes have samplers for you to listen to now.  Cassette tapes are still available for the Silver Strings Dulcimer Society recording.
