About Us

We're all about having FUN!

OUR MISSION:

have fun playing music together...

promote the mountain dulcimer...

provide lessons for new players...

Our Dulcimer Club is a group that is open to all folk instruments. We have open JAMS so all are welcome. Our primary focus is to enjoy playing our instruments together in a fun environment. Some in our group play on occassion for area nursing homes, and club events. Our first priority is not performance but playing together and supporting each other.

WE OFFER:

*FREE Mountain Dulcimer Lessons to youth & adults.

*Weekly JAMs for all to play together.

We encourage membership in the NGFDA (North Georgia Foothills Dulcimer Association)

OUR HISTORY

2007-2008
The SSDC started in August of 2007 with about 5 players. In the Fall of that year we became a Satellite group of the NGFDA and our membership grew. In the Winter of 2008 we began offering FREE Lessons and making loaner instruments available for those wanting to try out the Mountain Dulcimer. Summer of '08 several of us played at our first GIG (a luncheon at the Perry Tearoom).
 
2008-2009
Our 2nd year has been one growth.  We've added at least 4 new members new to the dulcimer.  We've had several opportunities to play in the area:  GA National Fair, American Legion Pancake Breakfast, Mossy Creek, The Jug Fest, Wedding Reception, UMW Circle Meetings, and area Assisted Living Facilities.  We're excited about 2009-2010. 
 
2009-2010
Our 3rd year has started as a busy one.  Several of us attended the Red Top Mountain JAM this past Fall and had a great time.  Our numbers continue to grow as new members come on board.  We've been very busy in October and November playing at the GA National Fair, American Legion Pancake Breakfast, Mossy Creek, The Fall Festival at Centerville 1st UMC, Oakland Baptist Church Homecoming, and the Galleria Mall.  Looking ahead we are looking to compile a new TAB book for our club and the opportunity of host a workshop this Spring in March.  More to come....
 
2010-2011
Our 4th year has been a great one.  Some of our activities: performing at the Centerville Fall Festival, Playing for the Perry Players presentation of "The Homecoming", a January workshop with Neal Walters followed by performance by he and Coleen, and JAMMin at the JUG Fest in Knoxville, GA in the Spring.
