Welcome to Gallier @ DulcimerCentral

...the sound quality and musicianship is among the best in the dulcimer world !”

— Stephen Seifert review of "Three Wire Choir"

This is the homepage of Gary Gallier, performer, teacher, and luthier. Currently you will find information about Gary Gallier, The Gallier Brothers, their recordings, Gallier dulcimers and ongoing instruction. As this site grows, it will serve to promote all aspects of fretted dulcimer playing and building, but with a strong emphasis on innovation in both disciplines. I plan on regularly updating this site with new TAB and calendar changes, so check back often...and yell at me if I don't !  I hope you enjoy it and thank you for visiting.
