Butch Baldassari and David Schnaufer - Appalachian Mandolin + Dulcimer

Butch Baldassari and David Schnaufer - Appalachian Mandolin + Dulcimer

Butch Baldassari and David Schnaufer team up on mandolin and dulcimer for a collection of traditional music.

From the liner notes: The Mandolin and Dulcimer met on the wagon roads and rivers of Nineteenth Century America. Their Italian and Germanic roots melted in the pot rich with Scots, Irish, African and English stock. They learned to speak the language of the natural new world of Cold Frosty Mornings, Muddy Roads, June Apples, Ground Hogs and Wayfaring Strangers. It's a musical conversation here performed on vintage and contemporary instruments in settings to showcase the rare archaic harmonies of these joyful, lonesome and eternal themes.
