Studio Artisans

Tish & Greg Westman

Planks of wood and piles of sawdust emerge as gifts of music from Tamarack’s wood studio. The husband and wife duo claims anyone can play the bowed psaltery, a Celtic stringed instrument.

To prove their point, Tish and Greg put psalteries in the hands of thousands of Tamarack guests every year, transforming them instantly into amateur musicians.

Their greatest gift, however, might be instruments they fashion to suit the physically challenged. “When we say anyone can play a psaltery, we mean it,” says Tish.
