posted Jun 5, 2015, 7:17 AM by Russell D. Hampton
On Sunday, June 7 at 3:00 p.m., First English will host the last concert in its 2014-2015 concert series.  At this concert, Nina plans to introduce folks to the mountain dulcimer, explain and exhibit a bit of dulcimer history, and play an assorted variety of styles on the instrument.  The Appalachian dulcimer (also known as mountain or lap dulcimer) is a stringed instrument, a member of the zither family, and originated in early-mid 1800’s in the Appalachian Mountains.  There will be a reception with light refreshments to follow hosted by Chef Rupert and students of the IUP Culinary School in Punxsutawney.  The concert is free and open to the public; a freewill offering will be taken that day.  Please join us for this unique concert!
