Sarah Morgan / Press

“There is nothing "simple" about this CD! Those of us who have been privileged to see and hear Sarah's musical journey with the dulcimer over the past 6 or 7 years can only marvel at how far she has come in such a short time and at such a tender age. This recording captures not only her technical mastery of the instrument, but it also conveys the pure joy that Sarah gets from sharing the instrument and the music it can make with others. Sarah likes to adapt all kinds of music to her instrument, including fiddle tunes ("Walkin' in the Parlour", "Twinkle"), classical ("Jesu Joy", "Canon in D"), and contemporary ("Time to Say Goodbye"). She even contributes an original piece called "Fall Colors", which she has dedicated to her friend and teacher, June Goforth. In addition to being a fine instrumentalist, Sarah is also an accomplished vocalist, and that talent can be heard on cuts featuring unique versions of the traditional gospel tunes "I Got Oil in My Vessel/Amazing”

Tull Glazener - CD Review

“In Morgan's hands, the instrument sounds like a harp from heaven. The first piece she played is titled "Suicide is Painless," better known as the theme song from the television series "M.A.S.H." With her right hand, Morgan picked the dulcimer in a style reminiscent of classical guitar, while all five fingers of her left pressed down on the fret board to create lush chords that belied the fact the instrument has only three strings. "I love the purity of the sound," Morgan said. "The dulcimer is probably one of the simplest instruments to learn, but it takes a lifetime to master." Forget what you thought you knew about the Appalachian dulcimer. In Morgan's hands, the instrument's range of expression stretches beyond folk music to modern opera and the occasional pop song.”

““This music is delightful! It takes you back to a different (better) place and time. There is a spiritual overtone that cannot be mistaken... I am listening to your music, over and over again, Sarah!” ”

Bev Morgan - CD Review

““Sarah Morgan offers a wide variety of musical styles on the dulcimer. She embraces traditional mountain music, rock and roll, island music, sacred, and classical music. With a talent and voice beyond her years, Sarah has a rosy future in the dulcimer world.””
