If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.”

Since 1975, Dulcimer Players News has played a key role in creating and sustaining a vibrant community of citizen musicians. We come from all walks of life and every imaginable skill level. Our unique goals as musicians and lovers of music are bound by the tradition of grabbing an instrument and having fun. Dulcimers, be they fretted, struck, plucked, strummed, or hammered are among the most accessible of all musical instruments. This is how and why our community endures. Join us and make some music of your own.
