Bill and Nina met at a mountain dulcimer festival in 2004 and began exchanging musical concepts and arrangements. They discovered that they bring a similar approach to the dulcimer and share an admiration for certain kinds of tunes. This CD features 70 minutes of solos and duets played on standard, baritone, and bass dulcimers. A few months after the album\'s release, Nina was awarded the 2008 National Mountain Dulcimer Championship at the prestigious competition in Winfield, Kansas. \'...Simply one of the finest instrumental recordings I\'ve had the joy of experiencing...a glorious celebration of how wonderful this instrument can sound, and how it can sing, in the hands of two sensitive and skilled musicians with huge hearts for music...The music ranges from Celtic, to Shaker anthems, to Broadway, to original compositions.\' (unsolicited review by El McMeen)
