Other club comments: We are a group of Dulcimer players that meet on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month. All acoustic instrument players are welcome to join us in the fun and fellowship. Mistakes are expected and met with smiles. Our motto is enjoying the noise..." I am so excited to anounce the move to Winter Haven for the 4th Friday gathering. Thank's to the wonderful efforts of Nat and Jane West and the generous members of "Main Street" of Winter Haven the 4th Friday of the month is "Dulcimer Night". Te Cypress Dulcimer Society is proud to be the host group. We usually have a Canopy set up for MD and HD lessons and demos for anyone who comes by. It's alot of fun and we get to entertain the citizens of Winter Haven as they enjoy Central Park. This is an informal jam session not a concert. All playing levels and all other clubs are welcome to join in the fun. Even if you don't play come by to enjoy Downtown Winter Haven and the fun and music."
