Musician, Teacher, Improv Artist
Is it an anachronism to play 80s pop-inspired tunes on an instrument that has been around since the Middle Ages, or a tribute to the versatility and beauty of a 120-string instrument whose unique signal has entertained through the ages? Tomko Lamb is a third generational hammered dulcimer player, who still has an original instrument built by his grandfather based on copy of a Gypsy instrument from the early 1900s.
A teacher by profession, Tomko started life as a busker and has played his dulcimer on the street and at fringe and other festivals across Canada, Australia. He still does improv with Loose Moose Theatre, but most enjoys creating bubbles of serenity with his dulcimer in the middle of our frantic, chaotic world.
