Dulcimentary: The Scheitholt

My latest dulcimentary is on the history of the scheitholt and the museum replica scheitholt Ben Seymour made for me.  OK, you say that’s nice but what exactly is a scheitholt and why should I care? Click on the link to read how this early instrument fits in our dulcimer world. https://athensdulcimerclub.wordpress.com/dulcimentaries/dulcimentary-articles/scheitholt/

Sheffey

Last night we dusted off our DVD copy of Sheffey that we hadn’t watched in years, and when the movie started I thought to myself since the movie was filmed at several Appalachian locations that just maybe I’d spot a mountain dulcimer in the background somewhere, though I really didn’t expect to. However, I was pleasantly surprised. See my dulcimentary at https://athensdulcimerclub.wordpress.com/dulcimentaries/dulcimentary-articles/sheffey/

Interactive Folk Music Map

Rfolkmusicmapbadgeecently I came across a map of Folk Music events and clubs. It’s still less than two months old so in time there will be more and more events listed added.

Last night I added the Athens Dulcimer information as well as the Athens Fiddlers Convention information.  Go to the map at
https://folkmusicmap.wordpress.com  and click on Alabama (or any other location) and keep clicking on the area you want and each click will drill down closer and closer. Some times it appears there is one event on top of another so keep drilling down. When you click on a particular symbol it will tell you about that event or organization. Ours has a star with TH meaning our events are on Thursdays. Other events may have a month such as Oct meaning the event is in October. Have fun.
