Thankful Thursday: Celebrating a decade of folk music Saturday at Richland Library

February 28, 2013 

Thanks, folks

I'd like to tell Herald readers about a local community group that I am thankful for.

The Three Rivers Dulcimer Society has been sharing Celtic and folk music in the community since 2003. It was founded by a small group of friends who came together to play mountain dulcimers. The group has grown by leaps and bounds since then, and now has several members who play other folk instruments as well.

We play at assisted living and retirement facilities, the Prosser Scottish Fest, the Tumbleweed Music Festival, art shows, fundraisers and other events in and around the Tri-Cities.

Our group will be celebrating its 10th birthday on Saturday, and we'd like to invite anyone interested to join us at noon at the West Richland Public Library for cake and music.

If you have a mountain dulcimer, hammered dulcimer, mandolin, pennywhistle, fiddle, autoharp, guitar or another folk instrument, feel free to bring it along and join in the jam! If you don't have a dulcimer yet, but are interested in learning to play, come anyway -- we offer free lessons. Visit our website at threeriversdulcimersociety.net.
