From traditional English, Irish and American based folk tunes to flowing airs, waltzes and hymns to foot stomping reels, Heirloom performs beautifully on Hammer Dulcimer, an ancient Persian instrument that sounds like a magical blend of harp and piano. Keith Plaskonos was the 1991 State Champion on this instrument. Lauren was the 2002 Oklahoma State Champion and both have competed nationally. Their CD -Heirloom, Music From a Simpler Time -features an eclectic collection of English, Irish, traditional American, classical and contemporary tunes. Accompanying the dulcimer are haunting vocals, guitar, violin, penny whistle and tambourine.
