Cancelled: Dulcimer Day

The Mountain Dulcimer is an American instrument developed by immigrants moving down the Appalachians in the 18th and 19th centuries. From these times this simple 3 or 4 stringed instrument was played on porches and in the homes of the Appalachian region. Through the years it evolved in structure, tuning, and repertoire. Today Mountain Dulcimer music ranges from traditional reels and jigs, to beautiful Celtic aires, and from classical to contemporary compositions. It is played as a solo instrument or in small and large ensembles.
