Welcome to Thornapple Valley Dulcimer Society

We are a group of musicians who gather together for the enjoyment of playing music with friends. There is an organized jam, everyone brings snacks, and the club furnishes coffee and tea. All types of non-electrical string instruments are welcome. We have a variety of instruments at our meetings - hammered dulcimer, mountain dulcimer, autoharp, mandolin, guitar, musical saw, fiddle, banjo, bass and others.

Please join us on the fourth Saturday of every month, September through May.  December and May meetings are on a different Saturday due to the Holidays. Check the newsletter for more information.
