Dulcimers have been around for many hundreds of years. They can be found, in various guises, in many countries around the World. Whether they are played with hammers, plucked, or strummed, they have a very distinctive, sweet sound. So why are they still something of a rarity?
The aim of our club is to redress the balance, and more importantly, to show people that learning to play them isn't as daunting as it may appear. It's also very rewarding and great fun.
Never seen or heard one? Just click on one of the images below, to see, and hear, one being played.
