The South Western Meets at the Nova Scotia in Bristol have gone Virtual! These are now open to all and are designed to be especially mountain dulcimer friendly. Other instruments are also welcome.

You will have the opportunity to play along with the lead player, just hearing yourself and them. And you can catch up and have a bit of a chat. Bring your own refreshments!

These fortnightly online meets have been going from strength to strength, welcoming dulcimer friends from Europe, the USA and even Australia.  Hosted by Geoff Black, the sessions draw on a growing bank of tabbed dulcimer tunes and new tunes are introduced – with guidance – to make them accessible to all abilities. 

Forthcoming Sessions:

  • Sunday, 5th July, 2020 from 2 – 4pm
  • Sunday, 19th July, 2020 from 2 – 4pm

Finally, a unique opportunity for all Nonsuch members to join in a celebration of the dulcimer community, the Big Dulcimer Video.  Duncan Gibbs has produced a backing track for the early dance tune “All in a Garden Green”, which the Nonsuch VNS group has been practising for a few weeks.  We will shortly be asking people to video themselves playing alongside this backing track and these multiple videos will be stitched together to make a big dulcimer orchestra, with visuals to match! 

Get in touch with Geoff Reeve-Black for details of how you can participate in the video or to be added to the circulation list for the sessions.
