Dulcimer Memories

Dulcimers and folk music have arrived at FOTMC.  When the store was located in the Cincinnati area, folk instruments including autoharps, hammered dulcimers, and mountain dulcimers were offered and programs provided.  That same look can now be found at the Wapakoneta Store.  We’re providing experiences for you to try out the instruments (Discovery Classes), offering workshop and concert days, weekly lessons (individual & group), jam sessions, and a weekend festival in May. 

Dulcimers in The Cornfield Festival
After three successful and fun festivals, we're going to end this festival at FOTMC.  Thanks to our local talent, FOTMC's "Circle of Friends," including Chris Cooperrider, Joyce Harrison, Bill Henderson, Joe Steiner, Don Thompson, Mary-Jo Ward, Sharon & Mike Wildermuth, Louise Ziegler, and Shari Wolf for all their contributions to a really fine festival.   Thanks, also, to our headliners for the last three years:  Maureen Sellers, Rick Thum, Wanda Degan, Gary Sager, Guy George, Dana & Hank Gruber, and Doug Berch. 

We had hopes and vision for a 'different' kind of dulcimer festival and, I think we accomplished that.   We hope to see you all in March at the Buckeye Dulcimer Festival.  For more information on BDF, click here.
