This is music for hammered dulcimer, an instrument that Robin Petrie has been playing publicly since 1980. Petrie is one of the five members of Panacea, a group specializing in Baltic, Celtic and Medieval music. Panacea doesn’t have any recordings, but the music you're hearing now gives you an idea of their sound. 

If this intrigues you, you can hear Petrie and other members of Panacea on Saturday, November 23rd, at Wisteria Ways in Oakland. It’s an 8:00pm show.
