Folk Mountain Gospel

Last night Don and Donna Mohl were in concert at our church. Don and Donna, under the name Folk Mountain Gospel, play traditional instruments such as the Bowed Psaltery, Hammered Dulcimer, Mountain Dulcimer, Mandolin, Zither, Guitar, and Harmonica. They travel 48 weekends of the year, which allows them to continue their day jobs during the week. Their music is a blend of “mountain” style and folk style gospel. They sing hymns, more recent gospel songs and some songs that they have written.

Here are a some videos that I recorded during the concert.

Listening to Donna play the Hammered Dulcimer brought back memories of a time in my life when a Hammered Dulcimer played an important role in letting me know that God listens to and answers our prayers.  You can read the story here.

If you are interested in their music you can purchase CD's at their Folk Mountain Gospel website.  All of the mountain instruments that Donna plays are made by Don.  He also sells custom-built, hand-crafted musical instruments to the public.  You can get more information about these beautiful instruments on their website.  Here are some photos of the instruments available.

If you would like Don and Donna to come and present a program for your church or group, just let them know, no group or venue is too small.  You can contact them through their website.  They are based in Southwest Missouri and travel anywhere that is possible in a weekend.


  1. I do love country and folklore music, loved to see the pictures of the instruments and loved the video - thanks for sharing all these with me/us.

    Have a wonderful Sunday!

  2. Gosh, I can't even identify what those musical instruments are, but they sure are lovely!
