cm0223The Melrose Dulcimer Club meets every second Saturday at the historic Melrose Homemaker’s Club building.  Our jam includes old-time fiddle tunes, waltzes, and gospel music or whatever happens to be called.  The instruments usually played at our jam?  Mountain dulcimers (of course), hammered dulcimers, kazoos, harmonicas, guitars, recorders, and occasionally a fiddle. Singing, too!

Thanks go to Historic Melrose, Inc (HMI) for allowing us to use their beautiful building!

Saturday, February 2

We have moved the February jam to the first Saturday because many of our members will be in Mount Dora for the Central Florida Dulcimer Festival on the second Saturday.
