CAROLYN CRUSO

Carolyn Cruso is an acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and composer. She has toured widely in both the United States and Europe, as well as producing eight CDs during that time. She is equally at home on hammered dulcimer, flute, guitar and vocals and performs a diverse array of original tunes and songs as well as traditional material. Her instrumental compositions are mainly for the hammered dulcimer and are inspired by her strong connection to nature as well as her extensive travel and the cultures she’s encountered along the way. Her unusual and lyrical approach to the dulcimer especially delights audiences and has even won over curmudgeons who swore they hated hammered dulcimer!    She celebrates the release of her latest instrumental recording, Migrations – A Retrospective (1989-1995), which draws from four early albums she made with the late great Robert Almblade.  Migrations was chosen Best Instrumental CD of 2013 by the Indie Acoustic Project. “A musical tour-de-force, fusing an eclectic mélange of folk, jazz and Celtic elements…a poetic virtuoso.”  (Eureka Times Standard) SUNDAY
