About Stu Janis

Unique music for your special occasion

Unique music for your special occasion - Stu Janis and his hammered dulcimer have helped couples marry since 1985. The dulcimer's clear, bell-like sounds add a magical touch to weddings. The sound is always present, but doesn't interfere with conversations, meaning your guests can focus on the couple and each other while still enjoying the enhanced atmosphere provided by the music. It's perfect for ceremonies, cocktail hours, and dinners. 

Stu's music can span a variety of genres, including Celtic, classical, American, Klezmer, and Scandinavian. In addition to hammered dulcimer, Stu also plays the Anglo concertina, handpan, and bowed psaltery.

Stu can perform as a solo musician or as part of Greenwood Tree, a duo that features music of the British Isles on hammered dulcimer, guitar, mandolin, bowed psaltery, and bodhran. If you'd like a contra or square dance at the reception we can also add a caller and fiddler.
