NHCDS is an ever growing group of music lovers, and we play just about any instrument that doesn't need to be "plugged in"! We welcome visitors at all of our meetings and offer FREE classes on mountain dulcimer, autoharp and hammered dulcimer monthly to members. First time visitors are welcome to attend free classes. If you don't have an instrument, there are always some available for you to try.

Come on by and join in the fun!



Shout Out from your Music Director



Greeting all!  This has been a very busy time for us dulcimer players. We had a great play out at the San Jacinto Monument on San Jacinto Day. Great to see all the kids who were interested in the club and in the Mountain Dulcimer.  Hopefully we will see some of them soon at one of our meetings.


The Lone Star State Dulcimer Festival in Glen Rose is just about shutting down as I write this article. Yours truly has yet to attend this festival. But it is on the bucket list. I am waiting to hear who our new Texas State Champ is this year in Autoharp. Mountain Dulcimer, Hammer Dulcimer etc…


As a special treat this next meeting will have a class on Fiddling taught by Jan Hargraves. Jan is a great instructor and will be teaching this class. It will be opened to everyone. So if you have a fiddle and are interested in learning about and how to play one of these wonderful stringed instruments. Or just need a brush up course.  Come to the next club meeting.


Last we will be electing new officers to the club next meeting. I would like to say it has been an honor to serve as Music Director for the past couple of years. So much I have learned and have been given. So many friendships have been forged. I hope that my tenure has brought something to the club. And I wish the best to who ever you elect as my replacement.




We are back on line!


Next meeting is May 17th!
