"Smile-inducing, toe-tapping, thought-provoking folkgrass" is how reviewers describe award-winning instrumentalist and songwriter Steve Eulberg's music. He weaves together age-old songs and tunes with new melodies and contemporary lyrics accompanied by dulcimers and more. "I live for the aha! experiences that people have and am dedicated to helping people enjoy their musical explorations on dulcimers and share them with others," Eulberg says. Students respond enthusiastically to his engaging style and warm sense of humor, making him in demand at festivals across the USA. Award-winner in the national mountain dulcimer contest at Winfield, he is also a multiple finalist in the national hammered dulcimer contest. His music has been included in the Masters of the Mountain Dulcimer Compilations, Great Players of the Mountain Dulcimer, and has been featured on PBS' RoadTrip Nation, United Airlines Inflight Audio and NPR. Old School Old-Time, by his duo Fiddle Whamdiddle, was featured in the first Grammy Ballot of 2013 and continues to chart on the Roots Music Report. Eulberg owns Owl Mountain Music, Inc., publishes the Dulcimer-Friendly Worship series and the Dulcimer Orchestra Library. He is co-owner and teacher on www.dulcimercrossing.com.
Hi my name is Catherine Stay. I am 30 years old and I was born with cerebral palsy. I got off rather lucky as far as this disease goes. When I was 12, there was the sixth grade orchestra orientation in which I wanted to play the cello (that didn't work out). I guess my not being able to play the cello in sixth grade led me to play the violin eight years later. About six months after I graduated from high school, I picked up the violin. I have to use a left-handed violin instead of the regular right-handed violin because of my cerebral palsy. Mine is three quarters instead of the normal full-size. I haven't entered any Violin competitions before because of these two reasons: Traveling anywhere is very difficult for me and I'm apparently too old to enter most other competitions.
About us: <br> Just open the window and let fresh ideas into the classical music scene. The Twiolins are the pioneers of the new wave of ‚progressive classical music‘ and cause worldwide sensations and excitement in the concert halls. Ear pleasing harmonies, broad melodic lines and eccentric pulsating rhythms are the trademarks of their music, merging classical, avant-garde, minimalist music and pop-art-pop into a new sonic sound universe. <br> <br> Marie-Luise and Christoph Dingler studied with Prof. Dora Bratchkova and perfected the art of chamber music in addition to the individual soloist training early on and won numerous awards under the name “The Twiolins”. Together they researched the complete repertoire for two violins and developed the idea of the Progressive Classical Music Award, which was first held in 2009. <br><br> They perform Nationally and Internationally, presenting new works for two violins and two violins with orchestra and have been broadcast on tv and radio worldwide. They shared the stage with “Spark” and Yuri Revich (both ECHO - Award Winner) and other famous classical musicians.
