Island Music Center presents singer/songwriter/hammered dulcimer player Carolyn Cruso in concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25.

Cruso weaves a web with her intricate hammered dulcimer compositions, fine guitar playing, expressive vocals, and poetic writing. From performing in Europe amongst musicians, jugglers, comedians, one-man bands, mimes and contortionists, to traveling the circus-like Renaissance fair circuit, to recording and co-producing with Billy Oskay (founding member of the Windham Hill recording and touring ensemble Nightnoise and producer of many Windham Hill, Narada and Green Linnet recording projects), Cruso has led a musically adventurous life. She has traveled the world, moving audiences with her expressive voice, flute, guitar and hammered dulcimer talents.

Tickets are $10.
