Saturday Sessions: Sweet Song: Hammered Dulcimer with Peter Hebert

November 29, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free weekend concerts at Denver Public library Central branch Level 1 Schlessman Hall! The library is way more than books.

About this weekend’s music group from DPL: An expert instrumentalist, Peter Hebert plays the evocative hammered dulcimer and its cousin, the psaltery, with masterful ease – filling the air with the ancient sounds of Medieval Europe. The Graeco-Roman dulcimer (sweet song) derives its name from the Latin dulcis (sweet) and the Greek melos (song). Find out how perfectly named this haunting instrument can be when Peter Hebert makes his dulcimer sing a sweet song. This concert will feature improvisations on songs and melodies of the Holiday Season.
