Dulcimer & Autoharp Home

Hammered Dulcimers, Mountain Dulcimers, & Autoharps

What we’re about:

QUADAS is a group of good folks who are interested in learning more about playing the hammered dulcimer, mountain dulcimer, and/or autoharp. We come in all different shapes and sizes and skill levels. Some of us are just starting out on one of these instruments and others of us have been playing for years, but all of us can learn from one another. We typically break up into groups based on our level and instrument with one of our more advanced players, learn some good music and playing technique, and then we all come together for a group jam session. Beginners are welcome to join us!

Where we playThe Zwingli United Church of Christ in Souderton has welcomed us to its community. QUADAS [kwah-dus] is easily accessible from Bucks County, Lehigh County, and Montgomery County in eastern Pennsylvania. We also have members from New Jersey who make the short and scenic trek across the Delaware River. You can find directions here.

When we play: We meet on the second and fourth Mondays of each month from 7:00 to 8:30PM
Next Meeting: April 22nd
