Sue Harris is one of the UK’s top hammer dulcimer players. She leads a community band, Bandamania, on the Welsh borders and runs several community choirs. She has many years’ experience writing music for radio and theatre and regularly works as an artist in residence in schools and colleges.

Sue is one half of the English Dulcimer Duo along with Lisa Warburton; creating a big dulcimer sound with their arrangements of English tunes and songs. On the dance band scene, she played in Umps and Dumps and The Albion Country Band; she provides PolkaWorks with newly composed material as well as lesser known tunes from her massive repertoire. The dulcimer not only provides rhythm, melody and harmony but adds an extraordinary sparkle to the band’s sound.
