I happened upon Scott Williams some 3 years ago at a Street Fair in San Diego and was immediately taken with this instrument...the Hammered Dulcimer...which I'd never heard of or seen before. The sounds that came out were heavenly...delightful...pleasing in every way. I thought the CD was a bit over-priced ($15.00), but I know that independent musicians have to cover costs...so I bought it.

Of all the tracks on this heavily-played CD, number 3 is my favorite. It's a wonderful tune called "Black Bird" and just hearing it makes you happy. You simply can't keep from smiling when you hear this melody...it's as upbeat a song gets.

The other stand-out is Harvest Home...a horn pipe which Scott plays incredibly well...the runs on the treble bridge at the end of the chorus are jaw-dropping.

I also enjoy Whiskey in the Morning and the Kesh Jig, which, interestingly, can be heard on the movie Titanic when Rose and Jack first go to the party "below decks" in steerage.

Lastly, I wanted to comment on the exquisite production quality. Rarely do you hear a recording that so perfectly produced...the tracks almost jump out of your speakers and his backup tracks are so perfect...they almost sound "canned", but we know that he plays and records all of his own backups on various celtic instruments. What a musician.

I'm hoping to run into Scott Williams again in the future...maybe I'll see him at another street fair. This CD is a wonderful addition to any music lovers collection. You'll wear it out...trust me.

Road to Lisdoonvarna Castle is an excellent CD by Scott Williams. This CD is definetly for anyone in the mood for a traditional midieval/renaissance sound. The hammered dulcimer produces the soothing sounds for most of this CD and is a remarkable instrument. I just purchased this CD from Scott Williams himself during the Las Vegas Renaissance Festival. A must have for anyone looking for a relaxing piece to sit at home next to the fire with.

I love it. I mainly listen to heavy metal so my friends make a fun of me. But the music just puts me in a great mood! I was told that all of the music was performed on traditional Irish intruments. He produced a wonderful album.

I caught Scott Williams playing back in 2006 when I was at Disneyland in California. I was walking back to the hotel when I heard the unique sound of the Hammered Dulcimer playing in the distance. I never heard an instrument that can produce such soothing and relaxing sounds. Scott Williams brings this instrument to life with his exquisite playing.

Songs are well done and put together nicely with accompanying insturments.
Some of his songs are slower and sad while others are so lievely that they make you feel like your in an old Irish tavern- either that or your on a pirate ship.
Awesome to listen to while traveling to renaissance fairs...
