When we can gather in one place again…

The Melrose Dulcimer Club will resume our every second Saturday gatherings at the historic Melrose Homemaker’s Club building in the near future.  When we resume, we will still gather on ZOOM (see below) every Friday.  We have picked up many new jam friends from afar over this past year and don’t want to miss out on playing with them!

Our jam includes old-time fiddle tunes, waltzes, and gospel music or whatever happens to be called.  What instruments are usually played at our jam?  Mountain dulcimers, hammered dulcimers, banjammers, kazoos, harmonicas, guitars, recorders, and occasionally a fiddle. Singing, too!
