On Tuesday, October 18, at 4 p.m., the Old Forge Library, located at 220 Crosby Blvd., will host award-winning musician, Dan Duggan, who will present a hammered dulcimer concert and lecture. The performance will feature both traditional and original music. Dan will also discuss the history of the dulcimer both worldwide, and especially in the Adirondacks and northern New York. He will also display historical instruments made in the eighteen-hundreds.
Duggan, nationally-touring performer and teacher, is rapidly being acknowledged as one of the finest dulcimer players and composers in the country. As a recipient of the prestigious National Hammered Dulcimer Championship, Dan’s accomplishment, though based on technical merit, is even more considerable as he is the first winner to have performed all original compositions.
This program is presented by TAUNY with funds from the Creative Rebuild NY grant.
