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. Many of our members also enjoy branching out into related instruments – mandolin, fiddle, whistle, psaltery ….. We come in all different shapes and sizes and skill levels. We play an eclectic mix of Celtic, Mountain and traditional music. 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. Beginners are the players the club is built from. If you are a beginner or just think you’d like to learn, you are more than welcome to join us!
Where we play: The 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 Villanova and the Main Line who make the trek up to Souderton. You can find directions here.
When we play: We meet on the second and fourth Mondays of each month from 7:00 until 8:30PM
Next Meeting: June 12th, 2023. We will play from the following list of tunes.
