This site accents the hammered dulcimer. We are from Michigan and there are more hammered dulcimers per capita in our state than in any other. Michigan is the home of the Original Dulcimer Players Club (O.D.P.C.), the oldest and largest hammered dulcimer club.

You'll find information on the O.D.P.C.'s Funfest (held each year in Evart, MI). We want the world to know about Michigan's hammered dulcimer events. We also include links to other hammered dulcimer festivals in other states by CLICKING HERE (or in the top menu) but the "accent" is on what is available in Michigan.

This site ( is our gift to the music community and want it to be commercial-free; therefore, we have created a second site: where you can shop for a hammered dulcimer. It even includes a classified section where you can list (for free) your own re-sale music items.

The menu at the top will not only let you check on dulcimer festivals in the U.S. but there are also links to a huge library of traditional tunes, dulcimer sales sites, and lots of other interesting links. We love hammered dulcimers!

We had over 2 million HITS last year! That's right, over TWO MILLION HITS!!
