Deborah (DJ to her friends) is a performer, songwriter, teacher, recording artist, choral director, and community music organizer. She teaches mountain dulcimer classes at Berkeley’s Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse; directs the singing group Women & Song; and teaches private voice, mountain dulcimer, and songwriting. Deborah founded the Berkeley Dulcimer Gathering at The Freight in 2013 and, with Steve Eulberg, co-founded the Berkeley Dulcimer Orchestra in 2014.

Previous recordings include Snapshots, also recorded with Mimi Fox, and The Green Man recorded by The DulciMates, her vocal & dulcimer duo with husband, Buffalo.

Matthew Dickerson

Matthew, known as "The Dulcimer Guy," developed a keen interest in the hammered dulcimer in his early teens after learning a variety of other instruments, including guitar and penny whistle. Celtic music led him to discover the unique and pleasant sound of the Hammered Dulcimer.

His first dulcimer was one he built from scratch and, after teaching himself to play, he quickly became an accomplished artist with the talent and skill necessary to win the Mideast Regional Hammered Dulcimer Competition in 2012. Shortly after this achievement, he entered and won the National Hammered Dulcimer Championship at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas.

Enjoy Matthew's exciting and awesome introduction of himself to you, with an invitation to subscribers to learn and grow!
