Welcome! Mary Sparks and her hammered dulcimer invite you in...enjoy!

File Has No Title

Thanks for stopping in to see what's going on in my neck of WNC.  I have been immersed in the Asheville, North Carolina music scene for just over three years and it is being a very cool part of my journey.  I've met, made music with and become good friends with some of the most talented musicians I've ever had the privilege to work  with. 

My site is new, so it is and will be a work in progress for a while.  Stop by often...I'll be offering up whatever seems pertinent concerning the hammered dulcimer, my love of it, how I'm stretching the boundaries of tradition, a little history (at least its history in my life), upcoming performance dates, and more.
