Philip Boulding started playing the Celtic Harp in 1975, in
fulfillment of an inner inspiration,
although his training began with violin and guiter, which was interrupted by the beguiling hammered dulcimer
Philip Boulding, Pam Boulding and Family
A few years after establishing himself in the Northwest, he
began the school of Magical Strings
where he met Pam. As an artist, with extensive training on the classical piano.
All harps and hammered dulcimers are designed and hand-crafted
by Philip and Pam.
Pam describes her dulcimer compositions to be like her paintings and sculptures with "very similar
colors of and space between the moving forms."
Thus began the collaboration that has created Magical Strings,
fulfilling Philip's long standing dream
of combining the beautiful sound of these two ancient instruments.
