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.
