Hall Story

 Classic Bill Spence Hammered Dulcimer Recordings

In 1973 The Hammered Dulcimer with Bill and Fennig's All-Star String Band was recorded in the Spence family's living room on a 2-track machine. Home-recorded, with liner notes written by Bill, this first recording has sold over 100,000 copies.

The Hammered Dulcimer marked the beginning of Front Hall Records, which, during it’s 20-plus year existence recorded many popular folk artists, including Bill Spence, Michael Cooney, Alistair Anderson, Louis Killen, John McCutcheon, John Roberts and Tony Barrand, Rick Lee, Lorraine Lee Hammond, and Walt Michael and Company.

For over 30 years ANDY'S FRONT HALL has been a mail-order source of selected recordings, books, instruments and accessories. We're located near Albany, New York in a scenic, rural setting at the crossroads between New York City, Boston, Buffalo, and Montreal.
