Reg (guitar, ukulele) and Linda Shoesmith (hammered dulcimer, bowed psaltery) have been playing as a duo for over 4 years. They will perform a variety of music, including Celtic, Scandinavian, American traditional and maybe even a 60’s tune.

The hammered dulcimer is a trapezoidal shaped instrument with about 80 strings, played by striking the strings with hammers (small wooden mallets). From the 14th to the 18th centuries, it was popular in Europe and the British Isles . It is considered a classical instrument in the Far East . The Celts, Germans and Scandinavians brought their instruments to the US . Once known as the poor man’s piano, it is the forerunner of the harpsichord and piano. In recent years it has been experiencing a revival in Western Europe and the United States .

Reggie Shoesmith retired as an Assistant Principal at Central High School, Davenport and is now in part-time administration at Scott Community College. Linda Shoesmith retired from Scott Community College as a mathematics professor.
