Musical Instruments Gallery Talk and Demonstration

Local performer Jon Weinberg will talk about the history, repertoire, and playing technique of the hammered dulcimer, as well as its distribution throughout the world. He will perform musical selections on a modern instrument from his own collection, and two nineteenth-century examples belonging to the Museum (from England and the United States) will be on hand for discussion and examination. Accompanying Weinberg will be guitarist Dave Coleman.
