Hi Folks
Hope you’re all playing some it!!!
About the gathering....for right now we’re still on...with some trepidation. many factors come into play we’ll make a choice soon. Even if the country’s “open” it may not be able to happen. We have a minimum headcount to make it work. Plus....if distancing is still required...we’d never be able to make it happen financially.

Difficult time for performers

If we cancel..same weekend next year

Please send any feedback or ideas

Be safe...well....and post those videos.


Folks....snow and will meet if you can join us...pot luck first Saturday of February

I'm looking forward to joining you this year as a mountain dulcimer instructor! Zoom!
Sylvia Reece and I are: Miller-Reece Dulcimer Duo. We have a new set for February. Set 12 includes: Can't help Falling in Love; Fools Rush In; One Hand, One Heart; and a solo: Follow the Drinking Gourd.

It's winter around here and playing (staying) inside is the best thing to do! Try to find at least one friend to play with and try out these duets. Most of the tab is on Tom Miller's page.

The solo rendition by Tom is a bit involved in technique. Tablature can't indicate all the technique so it will be personalized by whoever plays it. Let your ear be your guide!! (Tab is forthcoming.)

May it bring entertainment and smiles!
Tom and Sylvia (Miller-Reece Dulcimer Duo) have another set (11) of recordings focusing on Black History Month and MLK. It includes: We Shall Overcome, Redemption Song (Bob Marley) and 2 versions of Bring Me Little Water, Silvie (Leadbelly). As always feel free to share.
Sylvia Reece and I play dulcimer duets. We've recorded numerous songs on Sound Cloud. (Search: Miller-Reece Dulcimer Duo) Tab is available FREE by request. Just let us know. Here are some samples:
No plans for New Years Eve?
How about a dulcimer date?
Join us for a 90 minute song swap!

No plans for New Years Eve? How About A Dulcimer Date!

Why not join renowned Dulcimer player Stephen Seiftert and i for a 90 minute song swap via Zoom. $20.00 7:30pm CT to 9pm

Music, Stories, Lightheartedness!

Hope you can join us in the fun!

Have you registered yet for the 2020 Dutchland DulciZOOM Gathering on July 10-11?
You still have time -- the registration cutoff is June 30, which is now two weeks away. But we ask you, please, to indicate both your first and second choice of workshops for each time slot. Some classes are nearly full, and we want you to have a backup choice...just in case.
The good news, is there are LOTS of workshops -- 55 in all, over two days. Workshops will take place via ZOOM, so you will always have a front row seat. And we have a wonderful group of instructors: Susan Trump, Aubrey Atwater, Elwood Donnelly, Joe Collins, Butch Ross, Bill Collins, Laurie Alsobrook, Judy House, and Kirk House — plus finger style guitar artist, Andy Fox.
We have a full array of mountain dulcimer workshops for every playing level, including a full track for bass dulcimer, two ukulele workshops, and two finger style guitar workshops.
Registration is $5 for the event, and each workshop is $10. All workshop fees will go directly to the instructors.
For complete information and registration forms, visit our website:
Registration is open for the new online format of our 2020 Gathering -- now renamed the Dutchland DulciZOOM Gathering.

The Dutchland DulciZOOM Gathering will be held on July 10-11, 2020. Rather than cancel our 6th annual Gathering, we decide to keep everyone safe at home and still go ahead with our plans.

Instructors will be Aubrey Atwater, Elwood Donnelly, Joe Collins, Susan Trump, Laurie Alsobrook, Bill Collins, Butch Ross, Judy and Kirk House, and Andy Fox.

In addition to standard mountain dulcimer workshops for every playing level, we are also offering both beginning and intermediate bass dulcimer workshops (with Kirk House), two ukulele workshops (with Butch Ross), and two acoustic finger style guitar workshops (with Andy Fox).

There will be 3 workshop periods on Friday, July 10, beginning at 2:30 pm and 4 workshop periods on Saturday, July 11, beginning at 8:30 am. All times listed are Eastern Daylight Savings Time. Workshops will be capped at 30 participants.

Registration for the DulciZOOM Gathering is $5. Workshops are $10 each. Complete information about workshops, registration forms, etc. are on our club website:

We hope you will join us!
It seems like forever since I heard anything from my friends from club! Hope everyone is staying strong and healthy throughout this crazy time! We will come out stronger and maybe even alittle more accomplished on our instruments! Practice and maybe we will find the peace we need at this time through our music! I am safe and healthy as is my family! Please start sharing here so we can hear how we all our doing! 🎼🎶🤟🙏
