"We all want to thank you both so very much for the wonderful music you played for Mary Beth's and Eric's wedding. 
Family and guests we have spoken with this week have all said it was the most beautiful wedding music they have ever heard!"

Kathy (Mother of the Bride)
Music for your perfect wedding...

"Words cannot describe what a wonderful day it was.  You two put such a romantic touch on the day.  You play beautiful music together and everyone enjoyed it so much. Thank you for your very special part in making our day so great!"

For weddings, Steve and Ruth play a gentle blend of Celtic, traditional, light classical, and hymns,
providing a complete package of prelude,
ceremony, and postlude instrumental music,
including additional vocal selections.

Steve and Ruth, who are themselves married, feel that the marriage of the hammered dulcimer and acoustic guitar provides the soft, gentle touch that many couples envision for their special mountain wedding.

For those unfamiliar with the hammered dulcimer, its sound is light and airy - almost ethereal - and resembles a cross between a harp and a piano. Musically, it's an extremely versatile instrument that can play many types of music, from elegant and refined to charming and joyful. Visually, it's a beautiful instrument that will fascinate your guests. Combined with the rich, supportive voice of the acoustic guitar, the hammered dulcimer is especially perfect for outdoor weddings.

"Thank you again for the beautiful music you played at Ali's and Matt's wedding.
Ali told me the weekend was everything she wanted and more..........your music helped make it a perfect day!"
Carol (Mother of the Bride)

" I just wanted to take a moment and tell you how much we and everyone else loved your music on our wedding day.  I don't think I've ever heard anything quite like it, and of all of the decisions we made for our wedding, I believe having you there was right on top of that list.  Again, thank you so much for the beauty you added to our wedding, and I promise I will recommend you to future brides I know."
Kelly (bride)
