Hammer Dulcimer Jam 6/28/14 – archive

(Marianne’s casual writing style and less than stellar filming quality here. I’m just jotting down some memories. I don’t claim to officially speak for the group).

What a fun gathering we had here in LO! 8 hammer dulcimerists (I just made up that word), 1 guitarist and 2 flutists. A good time was had by all – and a few of us even hit a pub afterwards. And we had someone join the group who was visiting from Hawaii!!

Enjoy the video below. Please know that the emphasis is on fun, learning and camaraderie. While we aspire to play each song with clean precision, sometimes we just don’t. It’s a process and we’re always improving. We want anyone considering joining to know¬†that this is not about perfection and that all instruments are welcome.

The next jam will be in West Linn, Saturday July 26, from 2:00-4:00pm. Contact me to get on the mailing list and/or to get directions to the venue.
