WHAT'S ON THE DVD

Main feature: Hearts of the Dulcimer (NTSC -- ALL REGIONS)

Hearts of the Dulcimer is a feature-length documentary film about the mountain dulcimer boom in the 1970s in California and its lasting impact. Through colorful interviews, rare archival footage, and live performances, Hearts of the Dulcimer gives a firsthand account of living life in the counterculture, following one's passion, and playing and building mountain dulcimers.

In the late 1960s, the dulcimer made its way to California. Embodying the California spirit of innovation, an itinerant group of dedicated dulcimer enthusiasts created new traditions in both building and playing. Remaining true to the dulcimer’s rustic origins and do-it-yourself tradition, they found their own self-expression through the instrument. Over four decades, they went on a passionate journey with the dulcimer.
