New York City -- Who's out there??

Postby hmayes » Thu Nov 19, 2015 11:28 am

Hi, Any mountain dulcimer players and teachers in New York City? I've been asking around on and off for years and never seem to have any luck... So trying again! I would mainly like to find a teacher, but would also be interested in connecting with other players. Cheers.

Hi! I'm a newbie (got my first Dulcimer at Christmas). I've also tried to find some NYC teachers with no luck; but would be open to playing with some other people!

I understand there is still an active folk scene in The Village --- Bleeker Street? Ought to be some dulcimer players there. They were there in the 70s.

Well, Harry Oppenheimer lives in Staten Island. How far away is that?
Harry is on Facebook at:

I don't know if he teaches, but he performs frequently.
He's a great guy with lots of talent.

David Massengill is a fabulous dulcimer performer who lives in Area Code 212. He undoubtedly knows other dulcimer players in The City. Tell him Ken the dulcimer player from Fort Myers sez Hi.

Are you restricted to Manhattan or can you travel, say an hour or so? There are players in Connecticut and New Jersey who teach.
