The Hammered Dulcimer
Rides Again

(Night of the Living Son of the Daughter of the Bride of the Hammered Dulcimer)

Here ya go, folks...
The first Bill Spence & Fennig’s All-Stars album since 1993!

It's a 2-CD set with 9 medleys, and 8 songs on the first CD. The second CD has 15 pieces from our old LPs that were left off the subsequent CDs. That's 32 fantastic Fennig bits and pieces to make your life more joyous.

In 1973 The Hammered Dulcimer with Bill and Fennig's All-Star String Band was recorded in the Spence family's living room on a 2-track machine. Home-recorded, with liner notes written by Bill, this first recording has sold over 100,000 copies.

The Hammered Dulcimer marked the beginning of Front Hall Records, which, during it’s 40-plus years existence recorded many popular folk artists, including Bill Spence, Michael Cooney, Alistair Anderson, Louis Killen, John McCutcheon, John Roberts and Tony Barrand, Rick Lee, Lorraine Lee Hammond, and Walt Michael and Company.

For over 35 years ANDY'S FRONT HALL has been a mail-order source of selected recordings, books, instruments and accessories. We're located near Albany, New York in a scenic, rural setting at the crossroads between New York City, Boston, Buffalo, and Montreal.
