Touch of Grace - Hymns and Christmas Music for Hammered Dulcimer

Touch of Grace cover - hammered dulcimer in candlelight

"Ruth is one of the rarer exceptions in the dulcimer wor
ld. She plays with such feeling and expression. Her arrangements are a mirror of the emotion and personality that she puts into her music. When you hear her play you can visualize the setting she is portraying. A real touch of class that anyone would be proud to emulate.”
—Rick Thum
