Hammered Dulcimer Strings and Zither Pins SALE Folk Music in Maine

About Us

About Us

    Song of the Sea began in Michigan as Great Lakes Dulcimers in 1974, when Eddie Damm taught himself to build hammered and mountain dulcimers. Eddie and Anne Damm moved to Bar Harbor in 1979 and continued to build over 900 dulcimers, bowed psalteries, Finnish kanteles, and kinder harps.

        The goal of Song of the Sea has been to spread the joy of music and enable folks to add music to their lives,
whether by playing an instrument, building a kit, or listening to a recording.

We operated our storefront from 1983 - 2009 on the waterfront in downtown Bar Harbor and sponsored the Downeast Dulcimer and Folk Harp Festival for 22 years.
We also carried fine quality instruments from around the world including bagpipes,smallpipes, uilleann pipes, bodhrans, whistles, Celtic harps, concertinas, mandolins,bowed and plucked psalteries, instrument kits, and more as folks asked us to add new items.
We sold our building spring 2009 and continued our business through our website.
We take great care to adjust each instrument before it is shipped, to make sure it works properly.

We are retiring our Song of the Sea business at the end of December, 2016.

Thank you all for supporting us over the years
and helping us spread the love and joy of music!!
