Western North Carolina Dulcimer Collective

The Western North Carolina Dulcimer Collective is a member-supported group of players of mountain and hammered dulcimers, and those who enjoy listening to dulcimers and/or playing other traditional instruments with them. The group meets once per month at the Folk Art Center in Asheville to share tunes and information.

Meeting Time/Location

Second Sunday of each month from 2:30-5:00
The Folk Art Center Upstairs Gallery, Blue Ridge Parkway at US-70, Asheville, NC

Club Membership

While we encourage everyone to enjoy the tab and other content on this website, if you'd like to help support the Western North Carolina Dulcimer Collective we'd love to have you join as a member. Our dues are $5 per year, which pays for our printed, quarterly newletter. Mail dues to Carl Cochrane, WNCDC Treasurer, 3239 Heritage Circle, Hendersonville, NC 28739-3553.

Decision Time!

We've had the same dues for over 30 years! But they no longer cover the cost of printing and mailing the newsletters. We're going to stop mailing complimentary copies, but we need to know if members would rather raise the dues or start receiving the newsletter only via email. We'd continue to send them to members two weeks earlier than the free version, if so. What do you think? (The website costs are not paid through dues.)

Update:  After cutting back complimentary mainings and most of the extra copies for visitors and having a few members opt for email-only newsletters, it looks like we're probably breaking even for now. Thanks for your input and support, all!
