About the Artists

Kristin & David are a unique acoustic duo playing traditional American, Celtic and French Canadian music on the Appalachian dulcimer and acoustic guitar. They met at a local Irish session where their mutual love of traditional music brought them together, and have been playing together as a duo since that time.

David has been playing the guitar since the Beatles era, and brings a wealth of experience playing in rock, oldies, folk and beatnik bands, and more recently fell in love with traditional music.

Kristin has been playing the Appalachian (mountain) dulcimer for over 20 years. She began playing at historic re-enactments, and later joined the local Irish session where she met David and their partnership was formed. She has developed her own unique flat-picking style and is known for her lively and authentic interpretations of international dance tunes. She teaches mountain dulcimer workshops at festivals around the northeast and leads the local CNY Mountain Dulcimer League, a bi-monthly workshop.

Kristin and David are from Manlius, New York. They have performed at venues such as the Syracuse Irish Festival and the Westcott Cultural Fair, and have showcased at the Syracuse Music Industry Conference. They can be heard on WAER's Common Threads radio program, and have released two CDs, Old Tunes - Baked Fresh, and Tunes Twice Stitched, available on their website at and at CDBaby, as well as on iTunes.
