"The best hammered dulcimer player I know of...Captivating and unique!"
-EverythingDulcimer.com

I'm Vince Conaway, a musician and composer, and you can find me performing a wide variety of music on hammered dulcimer throughout the Americas and Europe with music ranging through Celtic, medieval, renaissance, and baroque repertoires. Whether I'm performing in English, Spanish, or Italian, I believe that the audience should not be separated from the show but instead be a part of it, and I bring a bit of cultural and historical perspective to every performance. You can purchase my music at CDBaby.com.

"Go ahead and ask him a geeky question. Odds are that he'll have an answer - and that he'll keep playing while he talks" - Medieval Cookery


Music is always a collaboration. You are a vital part of the show, elevating my performance through your expressions, questions, and reactions. I need your openness, your playfulness, and your support to keep the music alive and growing. Thank you for buying CDs, downloading from iTunes, and adding me to your Spotify playlists.

I want to brighten the world with my hammered dulcimer. If I can pull your mind away from your daily troubles for just a moment of melody I have succeeded, whether in the lanes of a renaissance festival or busking the streets of Europe.

Now I'm excited to offer you a new opportunity to come along with me on my journeys, through Patreon. Artists and patrons working together created the Italian Renaissance and changed the world. By becoming my patron in the classic sense you become a new kind of audience. Come join me as I explore the mountains of South America, entertain on the festival circuit, and wander the streets of Europe.

Help me get this show on the road through your Contribution!
