prairieland dulcimer strings

The Prairieland Dulcimer Strings are a beginner-friendly group of (mostly) Appalachian dulcimer players who meet on the first and third Thursdays of the month in Springfield, Illinois. We meet at Atonement Lutheran Church, 2800 West Jefferson, on the left just past Veterans Parkway on Ill. 97-125. For information, contact Pete Ellertsen, 2125 South Lincoln, Springfield 62704, email peterellertsen [at] yahoo dot com.
