Monthly Meeting

Next Meeting: Monday, March 15th

The Pocono Dulcimer Club meets the 3rd Monday of the month at the Eastern Monroe County Library on Rte. 611 in Stroudsburg in the Edinger Community Room, However, due to Concerns related to COVID-19, we are now meeting via Zoom.

(The Zoom link will be sent to club members no later than the Saturday prior to the monthly meeting – to get the link please join our club’s email list.)

In March we’ll start off with 2 or 3 familiar tunes we can all play, and then Norm will teach a couple of newer tunes (Skye Boat Song & Sweet Marie) along with some skill building. In our second hour we’ll focus on playing common Jam tunes (as found below). It’s always a good time.
