Kate Rouse, hammered dulcimer

Welcome to my hammered dulcimer website. I play with a band called KARA and am available as a session player. I mainly play folk music but have a classical musical background and love to explore the versatility of this instrument.


I play a Dusty Strings D45  15/16.

Above is KARA album launch at The Convent, June 2016, with special guest Jamie Delarre.

Video below (hopefully) of Kubla Khan artwork by Tamsin Rosewell, with Esteesee track from Ange Hardy, with hammered dulcimer.

KARA demo video below that - filmed at Queen's Park Arts Centre, January 2017.

Esteesee is launched and making wonderful waves through the folk scene!
Praise for The Moon & The Pilot in the Sunday Times, Nov 2015.
