The Maryville Area Dulcimer Club performed in concert on Monday, November 5, 2018, at 7 p.m. in Blount County Public Library’s Main Gallery, at the end of the Reading Rotunda.
The Maryville Area Dulcimer Club (MADC) includes men and women with a wide range of ages, walks of life, and skill levels. Participants enjoy playing a variety of music: fiddle tunes, hymns, waltzes, Celtic, Civil War and Appalachian—anything that sounds good!
The mountain dulcimer is the main instrument members play; however just about any instrument is welcomed. Individuals in the club membership have been known to play ban jammers (mountain dulcimer & banjo combo), hammered dulcimers, violins, guitars, mandolins, autoharps, and bass fiddles.
Various members of the club, or the club as a whole, have put on concerts for community festivals and clubs, nursing and assisted living homes and church services or gatherings. An annual community concert is provided at Blount County Public Library.
Free and open to the public, the program is sponsored by the Blount County Public Library, located at 508 N. Cusick Street, Maryville. For further information about library programs or services, call the library at 982-0981 or visit the website at www.blounttn.org/197/Public-Library.
