Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park

Date: Saturday, March 7, 2015. 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Description:

Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park will host a Coffee House hosted by Michael Vickey in the park auditorium on Saturday, March 7, 2015.

Michael Vickey has played Appalachian dulcimer for over 40 years, and hammered dulcimer for more than 17 years.  He has won numerous dulcimer competitions, and most recently has been the State of Florida Old Time Music Hammered Dulcimer Champion and Mountain Dulcimer Champion. His devotion to the dulcimer and traditional American music is shared with the other members of The Good For Nuthin String Band and he has written a number of tunes in the traditional style- several of which can be heard on the band’s CD’s. Michael is a lifelong resident of Northwestern Pennsylvania and is the owner of a graphic design and printing business. He travels the south extensively as a solo musician, where he performs traditional early American music while seeking out new tunes to share with his band back home.
