David Mahler

David Mahler, a Lynchburg, Virginia based musician, began playing the hammered dulcimer at the age of ten. Four years later, in 2004, he competed and won the title of US National Champion (setting the record for the youngest contestant to ever win.) David is quite versatile on the dulcimer, playing and teaching various genres from American folk, Celtic, Contemporary, to even Classical. He has recorded with Folk, Country, Rock, Indie, pop, and even a metal band. He is part of an American-Chinese-Jazz-Folk-Fusion group called, “Silk Cedar,” with whom he has toured music halls throughout China, and in the US. He also plays in a folk duo called, “Hickory Cathedral,” with cellist and multi-instrumentalist, Paul Friesen-Carper. Aside from producing several albums of original content, he has put out one instructional dulcimer book. Each of his instrumental recordings have within them refreshing, heart-opening melodies which reveal different seasons he has had with the hammered dulcimer. Always, he remains open to ideas and opportunities that incorporate the hammered dulcimer into new avenues of music and the arts.
