Hi Callie!  We're so happy that you joined us here at Psaltery Strings. I hope you enjoy visiting the site, there are lots of pictures and videos to look at and some very nice people to answer questions (your Mamaw answers questions for us all the time) and share the fun of playing the bowed psaltery.

Making music is a pleasure that you can enjoy for your entire life!

Donna

Amplified Psaltery with Cello Strings built by Rick Long

This video is a personal favorite because it shows a unique type of bowed psaltery with a gorgeous sound. When I heard it I broke out in goose bumps!

Please sign up on the bowed psaltery players list

Tish's list is a valuable resource when searching for other players. http://www.westmaninstruments.com/Bowed_Psaltery_List.html

If you are already on Tish's list, why don't you stop in and update your info? While your there take a look to see if there are new players in your area. Who knows, you might get together and make a recording.
