What is a Mountain Dulcimer?
Although the mountain dulcimer has its origins in the Appalachian region in North America, it was at the hands of German, English, Irish and Scottish immigrants that the instrument came to life. The instrument presents characteristics of many European stringed instruments, especially the German Scheitholt, considered the Mountain Dulcimer's primary ancestor.
