The location for all of the meetings can befound at the link for the meetings (http:\\www.lssds.org\meeting.htm). All levels of players are welcome to attend the workshops including beginners.We keep business meetings to a minimum and reserve as much time as possible for a play-around and jam session.
A newsletter comes out about one week before the upcoming meeting. Deadline for inclusion in the newsletter is two weeks before the next meeting.
There is no cost for joining LSSDS
The LSSDS sponsors the Lone Star State Dulcimer Festival at Glen Rose's Oakdale Park on Mother’s Day weekend every year. Dana Hamilton coordinates and emcees the festival.
The reason this group exists is to encourage/teach the playing of these traditional instruments. All kinds of music is encouraged. The majority of the membership sticks pretty much to "traditional" sounds, but those are personal choices and we like to hear "new" things on "old"instruments... or "old" things we haven't heard before.
The meetings are open to all who come. You can find all levels of ability. Those who are a bit more advanced, now, remember quite well when they were first starting. Ask questions and introduce yourself around. Bring your instrument(s) learn/play music with us.
February at Oakdale Park In Glen Rose: We used to have “Winterfest” in February. Then we had a joint meeting with the Red River Club and a mountain dulcimer building class at David’s farm in Bennington. Now we have a new plan. We are having a joint club meeting in Glen Rose. Oakdale Park called and offered us “Hamilton Hall” if we’d be interested in coming down for a weekend of music, fun and laughter. At the November meeting we decided that would be a great idea. So, February 11-12, 2022 we will be having a jam session time similar to the Huntsville New Years jam which isn’t happening again this year. So spread the word. Come and have a great time of music, etc.
