Arts & Entertainment Dulcimer Week at WCU includes dulcimer building course

A dulcimer-building course will be offered during Western Carolina University’s 12th Annual Mountain Dulcimer Week in July.

The course will be held all day Monday through Friday, July 18-22, and will be taught by Bob Magowan, a Luthier who has been constructing dulcimers at his home in Memphis, Tenn., for the past 11 years. Magowan has built more than 100 musical instruments, mostly mountain dulcimers, and has acted as the “dulcimer doctor” at dulcimer festivals.

Fees for the course are $325 to register and $200 for materials and supplies. The course is limited to the first 10 students to enroll.

Participants will build a McSpadden Sweet Song dulcimer. No previous woodworking experience is necessary.

Food and board are available for the week if needed.

For more information about the course, contact Magowan at magowandulcimers@ comcast.net. To register for the course or for more general information about Mountain Dulcimer Week, contact WCU’s Office of Continuing Education at (828)227-7397 or go online to http://dulcimer.wcu.edu.
