A regular monthly self-help in Redditch for mountain dulcimer players. We share tunes and techniques. Beginners are especially welcome, and we do things to suit everyone. Bring and Share lunch. Usually the first monday of each month, 11:00am to 3:30pm, please let us know if you are thinking of coming.
Our Southern members rotate around different venues in the region. We cover Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire and Wiltshire. The meeting are held several times a year, usually on a Sunday. Contact us for forthcoming dates and to go on a mailing list. For a list of tunes played, see Peter Bromwich's website.
This is new regional group meeting in the Dorset / Somerset area. Contact Jill Nicholas for details.
We are an all-ability group and we aim to have fun! We focus on the mountain dulcimer, but welcome all instruments. We try to play three or four familiar tunes from our core repertoire, by ear if possible; learn new tunes brought by anyone who wishes; cover a learning point or two; and of course have a chat!
We currently meet on the 2nd Thursday (evening, 7:30pm - 9:45pm) and 4th Saturday (afternoon, 2pm - 4:15pm) of every month. This does occasionally vary so please contact Sally Whytehead, Tel: 01527 64229, to confirm arrangements. We charge £2 per dulcimer player to go towards the room cost.
The Northern members have occasional get togethers at different venues, often at local folk festivals or local attractions.
A Welsh Dulcimers session is being organised on occasional Wednesday afternoons at TABERNACLE CONGREGATIONAL CHAPEL, Chapel Terrace, Rhiwderin, NEWPORT, NP10 8RH. We are mainly a Mountain Dulcimer group and during the first hour we concentrate on tunes that are easier for new and less confident players. After a break for lunch (we all take our own although hot drinks are available) we choose harder tunes.
