The Dulcimer Gathering of the Lafayette, Indiana Area
The Dulcimer Gathering is a loosely organized group of mountain and hammered dulcimer players who have been playing together since 1985. We gather together to enjoy the music, learn new songs and share our music with others. Players of all levels are welcome to join us.
During the cooler months from September to May we meet indoors at the Tippecanoe Arts Federation building at the corner of North Street and Seventh Street in Lafayette to learn new songs and techniques, and just enjoy playing together. We also occasionally play at nursing and retirement homes and at other venues.
In the warmer months of June through August we meet weekly in an outdoor venue and welcome other acoustical instrument players to join us. We often have listeners bring a chair and enjoy the evening while we play our favorite pieces. Over the years we have played at Fort Ouiatenon, on the John T. Myers Pedestrian Bridge, in Riehle Plaza, and at Centennial and Happy Hollow Parks. We are currently meeting at Cumberland Park on North Salisbury Street in West Lafayette. Check the schedule to learn more.
Our gatherings are fun, casual jams. Bring your dulcimer, or other instrument, and come join us.
