John Keane - Cypress Knee Surrender (From "15 Originals")
John Keane is one of the most extraordinary dulcimer players in existence. A lifelong tuba player (what does that tell you?) converted to mountain dulcimer, he is utterly amazing. The music degree, along with 30+ years of teaching music, he has the chops for sure.
His most unique strength? Songwriting. Original tunes, absolutely nothing like the usual fiddle tunes or old time tunes. This song is a great example of his dulcimer-songwriting originality.
We have this song available as a "single" - an excerpt from one of his books. We also sell the entire book as a download - here's a link to the complete book:
