Barbara Schirmer - the finest hammered dulcimer
Barbara Schirmer does not just play the dulcimer. She plays the original instrument in a way you have never heard it before.

Sound acrobatics on a traditional instrument

The dulcimer is a stringed instrument of alpine folk music, which possibly came to Europe from the eastern Mediterranean area. Barbara Schirmer celebrates the original instrument, which is no longer often heard in this country, in her own unique way. She conjures up new, never-heard sounds on the dulcimer, for example by playing with Chinese chopsticks or letting glasses slide over the strings. Her four-stick technique is also a feast for the ears and eyes. Barbara Schirmer is the only female dulcimer player in the world who has mastered this polyphonic sound acrobatics.


From north to south, from east to west

With her repertoire Barbara Schirmer spans a musical arc from traditional sounds from Appenzell to Eastern European melodies and South American catchy tunes. In addition, she also performs humorous original compositions, such as the homage to an ugly tomcat with seven lives, the five-day week blues or the folk song that gets lost on the motorway.


The "dulcimer revolutionary"

Barbara Schirmer has achieved international fame as a soloist on the dulcimer. For her innovative playing, she was awarded the title "Dulcimer Revolutionary" in a concert review in the German FAZ. Her solo album FALTER made it onto the shortlist for the German Record Critics' Prize. The newspaper Der Bund praised her playing as a "blessing hacked onto the board".
