We are a husband and wife team who provide soothing music on our unique instruments, mountain and hammered dulcimers. We are able to provide music for all aspects of your ceremony, from prelude through postlude. We can also provide background music for a cocktail hour and dinner. Check our website (dulcimerdreams.com) and give us a listen today. Since our instruments are portable, our music is well suited for weddings outside of a traditional church setting, such as a country club or park. We are also availble for private parties and community programs. Our rates are very reasonable with a basic wedding package of $250. Videos of our performances can be viewed both here and on wwwyoutube.com under Dulcimertunes. We are based in central Illinois. Read less

Maureen and Brain played music during our outside ceremony in the woods this past weekend. We have had many compliments. They are great to work with. Always respond quickly to emails and were so wonderful in letting us pick the music and have it exactly like we wanted. Our guests loved the music they played as guests were arriving and during the ceremony. We couldn't have asked for anything better for our day! So glad they were there to bring our day together with special music. We would definitely recommend them for any occasion.

Dulcimer Dreams played for the half hour before my wedding while guests were being seated. Multiple guests expressed to me how beautiful the music was! Maureen was very helpful and easy to communicate with. I am so glad they could play at my wedding and would recommend them to anyone looking for lovely music for any part of their wedding day, I couldn't be more pleased with Dulcimer Dreams services.

Maureen was really great--even though we never got to meet in person, I felt like we were on the same page during the entire planning process. I felt very confident that the ceremony music would go off without a hitch, and I was right! I also got many comments on how beautiful the music was.

I had Brian & Maureen Barnes provide music for my wedding ceremony as well as background music during dinner hour at my reception. I was very impressed by their professionalism and quick response times to my emails, phone calls, and questions. They were very reasonably priced and the music was beautiful. They provided exactly what they said they were going to and it was exactly what I had wanted. I am still receiving compliments on how wonderful their music was. I would use them again in a heartbeat!
