Liz Law
Liz Law has played mountain dulcimer for many years, both as a solo musician, and in duos and bands. She believes that mountain dulcimer is an underestimated instrument, and could be used to teach music to beginners, because it is easy to get started, playing tunes in a matter of a couple of hours' tuition.

She taught dulcimer at the Sage, Gateshead for over two years. She has also held workshops on numerous occasions, including the "Absolute Beginners" workshops, also run by the Sage, Gateshead. She is also willing to teach individuals either privately, or as a group.

In 2003 she was the main mountain dulcimer teacher at the Nonsuch Dulcimer club's annual get-together at Launde Abbey, in Leicestershire. This involved leading five workshops on various aspects of dulcimer playing over the weekend.

In 2003 and 2004 she taught at the club's "Winter Warmer" weekend at York.

She has also held dulcimer workshops at Folk Festivals, including Portpatrick and Lomond festivals.

Liz Law was a member of “Lucky Bags”, the five piece band which has two CDs on the Fellside label, "Food for Thought" and “Delight in Disorder”. Copies of these can be bought by e-mailing Liz. She played mountain (Appalachian) dulcimer and hammer dulcimer in her work with the band. With Terry her accompaniments are mainly on Appalachian dulcimer. She usually uses three dulcimers, tuned to different pitches. They were all made by instrument maker Stefan Sobell.

Prior to Terry and “Lucky Bags”, Liz played with ceilidh band “Def Whippet” and before that, was a member of regular Hartlepool Folk Club band “Granny’s Flat” with Geoff Marshall and the late Graham Whitley.
