Husband and wife duo: Heartstrings

Join us on October 10th for a special performance by Heartstrings: a Tualatin-based husband-and-wife duo playing “music for all times”—period and historical as well as contemporary. They specialize in costumed performances at 19th Century and Victorian-era interpretive sites.

Nancy plays the hammered dulcimer, a unique folk instrument with many courses of strings which, as the name implies, are struck with little wooden hammers. The sound is something like a harpsichord. Rob plays a stand-up string bass.  Nancy and Rob both play Native American-style flutes.
