Dulcimer Fest in East Lansing
The third annual East Lansing Dulcimer Festival will come to East Lansing at 8 p.m. Friday.
The dulcimer is a stringed instrument that was developed in the 1800s. There are two main types: the hammered dulcimer and the Appalachian dulcimer.
The festival will kick off with a concert by Dan Landrum and Stephen Seifert, two of the nation’s most talented dulcimer players.
Saturday will feature workshops for aspiring dulcimer players.
The doors for the workshops open at 9:30 a.m. Registration is available throughout the day, but preregistration is recommended because of limited space.
Concert tickets cost $15 for the public and $5 for students and can be purchased at the door starting at 7 p.m. Friday. Workshop registration is $20, plus $10 for each additional workshop.
