We just returned from Florence and saw a group on the street, that I gather from Youtube clips may be something of a staple of Florence street music. It features a heavyset guy on Hungarian hammered dulcimer with a bass and accordion player. We were hoping to get by that street again and buy CD's but did not. From this sketchy information can anyone tell me the group or how to locate their wares. They had 2 CD's and a DVD for sale. Thanks. Response to ppage@stcl.edu preferred.
