"Beautifully filmed and featuring performers whose talents ably demonstrate the dulcimer’s versatility, this is a fine tribute to an often overlooked instrument." - Video Librarian

“ … an eloquent visual ballad of the mountain dulcimer’s journey to the West Coast …” - Dulcimer Players News

“An extraordinary film, beautifully shot, with a storyteller’s sense of mountain and sky …”
- Jean Bartlett, Pacifica Tribune

“Hearts of the Dulcimer was a great addition to the Memphis Gathering. Everyone was completely taken with the stories and interviews and came away with a renewed appreciation of the journey of our beloved mountain dulcimer from an obscure mountain instrument to a global sensation.”
- Lee Cagle, Memphis Dulcimer & Folk Gathering

“This film will be an important part of California's cultural and musical history.” - John Maybury, Pacifica Riptide

“I recently attended the screening of Hearts of the Dulcimer in Pacifica. What a great film! I have had my dulcimer for about 40 years and this film and the cool folks that attended has rekindled my interest in this instrument I have loved for so long!”
- Dallas J., Pacifica, California

“We went tonight to the California premiere showing, at the old Pedro Point Firehouse in Pacifica. The room was packed with dulcimer enthusiasts and dulcimer newbies, and nearly every old hippie from Ben Lomond to Bolinas.”
- Aaron S., Mountain View, California

“There is so much history surrounding the mountain dulcimer which many know nothing about. Hearts of the Dulcimer is a valuable documentary with outstanding individuals who made this tremendous work possible.”
- Magnolia Strings Dulcimers, Hattiesburg, Mississippi

“This is just spectacular! The outside world will soon have a clue why some of us are so hopelessly in love with the mountain dulcimer!”
- Jerry Rockwell, Guysville, Ohio

“A heartfelt adventure of dulcimer folks ...”
- Mark Richardson, Scotia, California

Hearts of the Dulcimer is laced together expertly by the combined musical and artistic talents of Patricia Delich and Wayne Jiang. I hope this wonderful film lives long and is seen by many.”
- Judy Klinkhammer, Mountain View, Arkansas
