Hilary Davies

I have been playing the hammered dulcimer since 2005, and enjoy many types of music – especially early English dance music, but also Celtic, Appalachian, French and other styles. I enjoy arranging music for the dulcimer, and also the freedom of playing by ear.

I qualified as a Certified Music Practitioner in 2013, and have played in hospital and hospice settings. I have performed for the Hear Arts poetry and music series, for fairs, in nursing homes and in the town square in Rockville, MD, where I used to live. I also led the Northern Virginia Hammered Dulcimer Players group, arranging tunes and leading the sessions. I moved back to the UK in 2016 to be nearer to my two daughters and grandchildren, and am glad to be able to be a more active member of Nonsuch.
