Evan Carawan

photoEvan Carawan is an American hammered dulcimer player. He is the son of folk musicians Candie and Guy Carawan. (Guy introduced the song We Shall Overcome to the Civil Rights movement!) Evan  learned to play hammered dulcimer from his father, who was a pioneer in reviving American interest in the instrument.

Carawan typically plays in old-time music, Irish, and new-age styles.

Carawan has been a member of several musical groups, including The Carawan Family (with his parents and other associates, often Will Byers and Don Cassell), and the Atomic City Rhythm Rascals (with David Lovett, Chris McMahon, and Tim Worman).
