The Pocono Dulcimer Club

Meets the 3rd Monday of the month
at the Eastern Monroe County Library on Rte. 611 in Stroudsburg

in the Edinger Community Room

The next Club meeting is Monday,

May 20th, 2019


Time: 6:45pm to 9:00pm

It’s just 3 weeks from our festival and I’m still basking a bit from its success. We had 100+ participants, the feedback regarding workshops and teachers was very positive overall and the concert was awesome with many folks coming in from the community (about 150 in total attended).


In APRIL, Jonah will lead us in one or two new tunes + Kirby! (see tab page) …and then some jamming.  This Monday, May 20th, I would like to encourage all of you who attended the festival to bring something to share that you learned in workshops you attended. Maybe a new skill was learned, or a skill you had been trying to grasp clicked, or a new tune was learned. Perhaps you gained insight into how to structure tunes or develop your practice time. Whether mountain or hammered dulcimer come and share with us and increase our collective knowledge and skills.  We’ll also play some tunes and enjoy the comradery. We look forward to seeing you.

Here are a few of the tunes we play and we're learning more all the time. 

Bile Dem Cabbage w/ B part, Black Mountain Rag, Angelina Baker, Rock the Cradle Joe, Camp Meeting on the 4th of July, Barlow Knife, Little Liza Jane, Bonaparte Crossing the Rhine, Bonaparte's Retreat, Erin's Kitchen Table, Pretty Betty Martin, Sadie at the Back Door, Old Rosin the Beau, Arkansas Traveler, Down the River I Go, Hard Times , Holy Manna, I'll Fly Away , Little Bitty Man, Midnight on the Water, Sandy River Belle, Over The Waterfall, Pretty Little Girl with the Blue Dress On, Sheepy and the Goat, Shepherd's Hey, Simple Gifts , Soldiers Joy, Southwind, Spotted Pony, Spring Creek, Mes Parent, Egan's Polka, John Ryan's Polka, Grey Squirrel Eating up the New Ground Corn, White Creek Pass, Pocono Hornpipe, Spring Creek, and many more!

Our monthly meetings are focused on learning and playing these wonderful instruments.  We strive to learn &develop new tunes and songs that members bring and then "jam" at the end of the night to reinforce the learning and to develop our playing skills with others.  If you're in the Pocono region come join us!  BEGINNERS are especially welcome!!! (Other acoustic instruments are certainly welcome too!)
