What sets The Polka Nuts apart is their use of the hammered dulcimer, which adds a wonderfully joyous sound to their already flawless playing.
Now, the hammered dulcimer and the tsimbl are first cousins (same construction, different tunings). And Pete Rushefsky is about the best tsimblist (yes, that's where Efram Sr & Jr & Stephanie got their last name) out there today.
Pete and a few friends - Joel Rubin, Steve Greenman, Bruce Bierman, and more - will be at KlezmerQuerque 2012, the 10th anniversary of Albuquerque's own world renowned klezmer festival.
Enjoy listening to The Polka Nuts. And if you can't get enough hammered dulcimer, come hear Pete Rushefsky at KlezmerQuerque!
