The times for the Firelands Club are in the evening, of course.

We'll, I found the Mansfield group. Meets in Ontario, Ohio third Thursday every month at Ontario Christian Church 1029 Lewis, rd. Ontario, Ohio. Contact Dorothy Welch 419 *** 1783. (Moderator edit. We recommend exchanging phone numbers and email addresses through private messages. Thanks!)
I don't know where you live but I play out of the Norwalk Firelands Dulcimer Club. It is listed as Sandusky location but it is really in Norwalk. We meet second and fourth Wednesdays from 6:30 to 9:00 at the Senior Center on Shady Lane Drive. If you live close to us, come and join us.

There is indeed a dulcimer club in Mansfield. I played with that group last year at Kingwood Center. Sorry, I don't know who to contact. Maybe if you google it you will find it.

Sue, I'm trying to think whether I know any dulcimer folks who live near Mansfield. I'm sure there are some. . .

Ann, you may wish to begin a discussion in the Discussion Forun about your father so the information will be around for future readers to see-- the Comment Wall comments fall away much easier.
Hope you have good luck with locating dulcimers your dad made!

Art Nicholas - Dulcimer Maker/Player


Dad passed in 2001 due to complications associated with Cancer.

If you have one of his Mountain Dulcimers and would be willing to part with it, the family would be interested in purchasing it back from you, so we might pass them on to family members who do not have this precious keepsake from him.

His name (Art Nicholas), Works of Art, the first tune played on the Dulcimer, the Dulcimer number, and the date completed are listed on a piece of paper glued below one of the sound holes.

Please advise to my email: 


Thanks very much!

Visit Strumelia's Beginner Noter-Drone dulcimer Blog

I have a main blog for Traditional style mountain dulcimer playing here: Mountain Dulcimer Noter-drone Blog This is an old style of playing where you only fret your notes on the melody string, while letting the drones strings ring open. In my blog, I express my personal views about playing, I offer free TAB and free beginner videos, and I try to help beginners understand in a very basic simple way the 'mysteries' of playing the mountain dulcimer in traditional modal noter/drone style.
