Dr. George Orthey

Recommended Posts

It is with great sadness that I share the news of the death of my friend, Dr. George Orthey. During his lifetime he built over 1,500 dulcimers and 1,500 autoharps. An article about George appeared in Dulcimer Players News, Vol. 13, No. 1, Winter, 1987.

He made two diatonic autoharps for me since 2004 and they are real treasures and in 2018 I won the competition at the Mountain Laurel Autoharp Gathering he started in 1990...quite a character.
