Welcome!

We are a loosely organized group of folks who live in Western Washington state and like mountain dulcimers.

Mountain dulcimers are the potato chips of the musical world. It's easy to start and hard to stop.

Come and join us anytime! See below for our current schedule:

Summer/Fall 2018

May 19, 2018


We have a schedule for the remainder of 2018!  Here goes;

June

Friday, June 8, 7 to 9 p.m.    We’ll meet at the Griffin Fire Department, 3707 Steamboat Island Rd NW, Olympia WA. This is a practice session for the next day. Count on a run through of all the very easy, old favorites including Liza Jane, Grey Cat on a Tennessee Farm, Old Joe Clark, Mes Parents, Black Mountain Rag and Soldier’s Joy.  Please bring your stash of old favorites because we may need another tune or two to be ready for the next day.

Saturday, June 9   (Performance Time To Be Announced Closer to Date).   We’re on stage at the Strawberry Festival!  This will be at the South Bay Grange at 3918 Sleater Kinney Rd NE.  You may have to park across the street at the school and walk over (not far). As a performing musician, you’ll receive a chit for a very lovely piece of strawberry shortcake. We’ll play for about twenty minutes. There is a back stage area for setting up and tuning and storing cases. This is an unsecured area — please don’t leave purses or instruments unattended. We can trade off watching and eating!  We’ll play our list of easy tunes, have a blast and know we helped the organizers raise some money for a kid’s summer theater production. Good times all around. What to wear?  Clothes highly recommended.

July

July 7 –  Picnic at Dean and Elaine’s! Come anytime after 10am and stay as long as you like! Dean is reaching out to players from other parts of the state, so this could be a grand time to meet some new faces. Come play out under the firs at a very special spot. 12941 Campbell Ln SE, Tenino, WA 98589. Bring food/beverages to share if you like. Food and drinks will be available as well! Please RSVP to elaine@oldgrowthmountaindulcimerclub.com
