UPCOMING LIVE CONCERT

Hammered Dulcimer Concert by KATIE MORITZ

AUGUST 30th
5:30 p.m. PDT | 6:30 p.m. MDT | 7:30 p.m. CDT | 8:30 p.m. EDT


2013 National Hammered Dulcimer Champion, Katie Moritz is a hammered dulcimer player and teacher whose style of playing ranges from American old-time to modern pop.  She began playing the instrument in 2006. Her studies of the instrument have led her to travel and learn from many other dulcimer players.  She's combined her scholarly studies of music with her informal training to develop a style of dulcimer playing uniquely her own.

Currently, Katie teaches private students in Yorkville, IL,  and group workshops at festivals and gatherings around the country.  Her dulcimer playing with Lisa Fergusoncan be heard on a Duet CD called Kaleidoscope, which is available for sale here.

Katie's Concert Window show will be on Thursday, August 30th. Click HERE for a link to the show.

NewDULCIMER EVENTS PAGE

We have added a Dulcimer Events Page to our website (see the 6th tab from the left at the top). Our vision is to provide as complete a list of dulcimer events as possible - including not just festivals, but also workshops and concerts by dulcimer artists. You can sort this database and look over upcoming events according to the start date, type of event, name of event, location, city, and state. Just click on the column title to reorganize the information.

Please feel free to let us know about your upcoming event by using the Dulcimer Event Information Form. And always keep an eye on our Live Events Calendar, for upcoming concerts sponsored by Dulcimer Crossing.

FISHER'S HORNPIPE for HD Players

"Fisher's Hornpipe" is presented by our newest hammered dulcimer teacher, Matthew Dickerson. This is an old fiddle tune well-known in many folk music circles, from American Old-Time Music to Bluegrass. It was composed by J. Fishar and published in 1780. The hornpipe is an Irish, Scottish and English dance done in hard shoes so you can hear the rhythms. 

Enjoy Matthew's arrangement as he plays through the tune for us, and accompanies himself on the guitar.
