Maggie's music is such a joy to me. I enjoy all her CD's and love attending her concerts. Not only does she play hammered dulcimer, but she also teaches, writes and composes music and performs with many of her friends. Maggie is a true musician in every sense of the word. Her newest CD "Cold Frosty Morn, West River", where she is accompanied by Pat Egan (Guitar & vocals), Andrea Hoag (Fiddle), and Sharon Knowles (Celtic Harp) isn't featured on this radio station yet, but I hope it will be added very soon.

I have the recording of Maggie Sansone`s " Mist and Stone " , and it is wonderful. Something special to listen to on a quiet , rainy night.
