  • You will enjoy this video of Joy to the World played by Dan Landrum and Mark Alan Wade. The chord progressions they used add color and interest to this arrangement. And what about Dan's hair!

  • This version of Joy to the World by Mark Wade rocks! Mark was the first place winner in the 1998 National Hammered Dulcimer Championship in Winfield, Kansas, and is one of America's premier Hammered Dulcimer Soloists and Clinicians.
