I.D. Stamper spent a lifetime building and playing the Appalachian dulcimer. His playing style shows heavy blues influence and a rhythmic power and complexity rarely heard on this instrument. He appears in Appalshop’s 1976 documentary “Sourwood Mountain Dulcimers” with a young John McCutcheon: together they together, swap tunes, discuss musical traditions and demonstrate the difference between hammered and mountain style dulcimer. Red Wing is the only album I.D. Stamper ever released.
