"The Wildwood Express Band is unusual due to the combination of instruments featured.  The most unusual is the hammered dulcimer, which you don't typically find in this area.  Most of their music will reflect on yesteryear.  They are available for festivals, church events, schools, company functions, civic organizations, wedding receptions/anniversaries, or any other 'gathering'.
