Kyle Meadows

Kyle Meadows has been playing the hammered dulcimer professionally for more than 20 years. The beautiful sound of the hammered dulcimer first attracted him to the instrument and continues to inspire him today. Its bell-like tones resonate and create layers of sounds that mingle with one another. Meadows' arrangements are unique in that they often consist of slow, graceful tunes with ample spaces between the music, allowing the listener time to absorb the pitch and placement of the notes.
