Workshop Description:

This exploratory class will cater to beginning mountain dulcimer players as well as experienced musicians who want to add the dulcimer to their skill set. Simple, familiar melodies within Old-Time repertoire will be taught as a vehicle to approach technique and development of basic skills.

This class will be conducted in DAD tuning. A capo and 6+ is not required. 

Southern West Virginia native Hunter Walker is recognized as a driving force in the Old-Time community for his innovation with the mountain dulcimer - as well as his skills as a banjo player. As a five-time WV state mountain dulcimer champion, Hunter has earned multiple blue-ribbon finishes at many prestigious venues, including the Appalachian Stringband festival at Clifftop, WV. His current work is with Long Point String Band and is a teacher of music at a center for disadvantaged youth in Beckley, WV.
