Jenny Wiley Dulcimers and Kits
What makes the dulcimer so easy to learn and play is its simplicity.
This book reveals the tried and true method to learning to play the dulcimer.
The birthplace of the dulcimer is in the hills of Appalachia.
These lap instruments were easy to build and easy to play. They hold a wonderfully rich tradition and heritage.
The majority of my life was spent on the banks of the Big Sandy River. My home is a small community called "Zelda" in Lawrence County, Kentucky. Raised in the music rich foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, I have always been exposed to the unique mountain musical culture of family, friends and neighbors.
Music is as much a part of my life as falling in love. Members of my family, most of my neighbors, fellow school chums and local gospel groups played, sang and shared their musical talent(s) with all (or anyone) that would listen.
