Dulcimer virtuosos to present July 22 concert

Written by 

A group of award-winning mountain dulcimer players — including several national champion musicians — will present a concert of dulcimer music at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 22, at Western Carolina University’s Fine and Performing Arts Center.

The concert is sponsored by WCU’s Division of Educational Outreach and features the staff of Mountain Dulcimer Week, an annual residential workshop that brings together dulcimer masters and players of all skill levels for a week of courses and performances.

The show will feature a mixture of traditional and contemporary songs played on baritone and bass dulcimers, and some played with a violin bow. Performers will include Susan Trump of New York and Molly McCormack of Kentucky, both of whom accompany themselves while singing, and national champions Jeff Hames of Mississippi and Erin Rogers of Kansas.

$12 adults, $7 students and children. Tickets are available at the arts center box office from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, by calling 828.227.2479, or at www.wcu.edu/fapac.

Space is still available for courses during Mountain Dulcimer Week, scheduled for July 18 to 23. dulcimer.wcu.edu or 828.227.7397.

It was my first time ever playing it, and first time actually hearing about the sport.
