Art In Nature Bonfire Concert features Tryon resident Mark Grobner with his hammer dulcimer. Mark Grobner has provided therapeutic music in hospital, hospice, and long-term care settings since 2002. He has presented on the topic of Music & Healing at various conferences and seminars including the 2004 Advocate Healthcare Dimensions of Excellence Conference with music therapist Soozie-Cotter Schaufele. "While Mark plays with great technical precision, more importantly is the sensitivity and soulfulness that comes through his delivery" (Ken Kolodner). Mark teaches the hammered dulcimer in Indiana and performs throughout the Midwest. He has recorded three CDs, and produced the compilation CD, Journey to the Heart, Hammer Dulcimer Expressions, which includes some of the finest hammered dulcimer players in the country.
