Garrett played the Hammered Dulcimer perfectly and added an ambiance that no one else could. I recommend him to everyone.

I wanted a very timeless, ethereal feeling for my ceremony and Garrett definitely delivered. We had a celtic handfasting and the ancient quality to the sound of the music really made it feel spiritual and majestic. What can I say? I wouldn't have had it any other way. It was...

My husband and I were looking for an artist who would create an atmosphere of mystery, anticipation, and exquisite beauty through sound, for our wedding, and we were not disappointed! Garrett's taste for what music to play while our guests were gathering was perfect. We had met... Read More and discussed some ideas before the wedding, and I asked Garrett to go with what he thought would be the best - I had told him what we were envisioning, and I trusted Garrett's judgement in song selection . He was also great with learning a song that was special for me and my husband. Garrett's choice of music for the pre-ceremony time was wonderful; our ceremony had several special moments that we wanted accompanied with music, and Garrett created a soundtrack for our ceremony that was stunning. He was able to play softly enough to not interfere with what has happening, but the music carried us along and crescendoed at just the right moments. My husband and I highly recommend Garrett - the hammer dulcimer is an instrument that conveys emotion in a unique way and we were so happy Garrett was a part of our most special day.

Perfect sound & atmosphere

We got married outside at a location with a beautiful view of Mt. Shasta and we wanted music that could accompany the surroundings. Garrett's work in the hammer dulcimer was a perfect addition to our day. His mastery the dulcimer demonstrates the range of sounds that can be... Read More simple and serene or complex and powerful. He was very professional and easy to work with throughout the whole process. I was not sure how to explain what we wanted, but he listened to our vision for the day and arranged the songs accordingly (he even came up with some original arrangements for our favorite songs). He was able to explain and breakdown his equipment/sound needs in a manner that was easy for non-musicians to understand. He helped to take the stress out of having live music at an outside site. We couldn't of been happier with the final product. The music did not over power, it was the platform for each point of our ceremony. Garrett is passionate about the dulcimer and music. His artistry adds a wonderful romantic atmosphere to the event. We strongly recommend him.

Perfect Wedding Music

Garrett Viggers was outstanding to work with in preparing for our special day as well as on the day itself. Not only does he provide the couple with professional demeanor but he brings to the table a passion for the wedding and the promise it holds as well as loads of... Read More experience. Garrett provided prelude music as well as selected tunes for the entire ceremony and I have not had one person who attended the wedding who did not compliment us on the incredible sound of that "what’s that thing called he was playing". (: The sounds of the hammer dulcimer, as played by Garrett Viggers offer deep and rich tones as well as wonderful song selection to fit the mood and occasion. With Garrett's experience and passion for making the day special, he was able to help us with song selection to fit our mood and ceremony. We loved every moment of the music and would recommend any couple take a listen to Garrett's work and give him a call to help make your day incredible!!!
