Maggie Sansone is a hammered dulcimer player and recording artist from Miami, Florida.


Sansone started recording her music in 1984.[1] Since then, she has made over a dozen recordings, both solo and as a guest artist or in collaboration with numerous recording artists such as Bonnie Rideout, Al Petteway and Ensemble Galilei.

Although she is perhaps best known for her hammered dulcimer recordings, she also plays the piano, guitar, mandolin, and Northumbrian small-pipes.[1]

Sansone has performed at the Maryland Renaissance Festival for more than twenty years.[2] She currently resides in Maryland.
