Prairieland Dulcimer Strings
If you're interested in music, if you like to play or if you want to learn to play the mountain dulcimer, please join us. We meet from 7 to 9 p.m. on the first Thursday of every month at Atonement Lutheran Church, 2800 West Jefferson, Springfield, Illinois.
We spend the first hour learning songs, and the second playing tunes suggested by members. We play the common dulcimer jam tunes, gospel and folk hymns, old-time fiddle tunes, Celtic and American folk songs, waltzes, Broadway show tunes and Tin Pan Alley standards - and anything else that any of us suggest! Most of us are beginning- to intermediate-level players, and brand-new beginners are welcome. Our focus is on dulcimers, but other compatible acoustic instruments will also be welcomed.
