Originally from Brittany, a small Celtic country in western France, I first discovered the rustic folk instruments made by my paternal great grandfather, I became enthralled with the idea of experimenting with ways to make these primitive instruments sing.
With no realization that these crude wooden boxes with strings existed beyond Brittany, and no one to teach me, I developed a different playing style, not an american style, and only later learned that these same instruments existed in America as mountain dulcimers!
thanks every body. I'm happy you like my job.
Cristian, I am at a loss for words! And if you knew me you would no that is a miracle. I can't stop watching you play it is beautiful. I loved song for Kieran. Your strum tech. was fasinating to watch. Looking forward to more of your videos.
thank's a lot everybody for all these comments. it's a real pleasure for me. I'll put some other videos in a few days... or weeks !...or when I have enough time...but I don't forget you.And if you have plans or ideas for that, I should come and play on stage in usa, during 10 days or 2 weeks, with great pleasure.
I've see your videos before. I really like how you've adapted the Dulcimer to playing with an ensemble. I'm listening to your Myspace page now, You are an Incredible player.
Cristian, votre English et plus meilleur que mon Francais!
Thank you for your music...enjoy!Scooter
Welcome Cristian. I'm a big fan of your music and I am glad to see you here!
Welcome Cristian, glad that you have joined us. I have spent many happy times in Britany, if I did'nt live in the UK I would wish to live somewhere in Morbihan perhaps, I have played dulcimer there at some of the small village festivals, also at the Fete des Brodeuses, Pont-L-ABBE. Enjoy your time here. JohnH

Welcome! It's nice to continue our connection in another dulcimer place.
Bienvenu au FOTMD, Cristian. Ta musique me plait beaucoup. Il y a plus que 20 ans, j'ai passe quelques mois a Rennes, mais je n'ai appris aucun mot de Breton.
Welcome to FOTMD Cristian.
