Meetings are held on the fourth Sunday of every
month (except November and December) beginning at
1:30 pm at Second United Methodist Church located in
downtown Knoxville, TN just off I-40. (See
Directions on Church website)
The first hour of club meeting is devoted to instructional classes,
workshops and sharing sessions. We do try to have classes dedicated to
Beginners at every meeting. The second hour we all get together and have
a club jam. All instruments are welcome.
Membership is not required to participate in club meetings. The jam is
open to listeners as well as players. You can join KADC for $20.00 per
year. Dues are prorated as follows for new members: 100% from
January 1 thru June 30 and 50% from July 1 thru December 31.
Membership in the club includes the monthly newsletter, Dulcimer Daze,
which can be delivered either electronically or by regular US Mail.
In addition to club favorite tunes, we use some music from
Stephen Seifert's book, Join the Jam. This book is
available thru the club to members at a special price.
Other sheet music is available at our greeting table for 10
cents a copy. We do have a large music library for you to
choose from. Our Members Only page also provides you
with pdf files of our current jam and playout tunes that you
can print at home or export to a tablet or other device.
Members are provided the password when they join or
renew their membership. If you need the current
password, please contact any Board Member or Linda
Smith at 865-675-2476. The password did change the
first week of May, 2017.
Other Books often used by the club for tunes:
Simply Celtic - Joe Collins
Baker's Dozen #13 - Patriotic Tunes - Shelley Stevens

You may want to purchase your own copy of these from
the various artists. They may also be available at Wood N
Strings Dulcimer Shop in Townsend.
We invite you to come visit a KADC meeting. You
will discover many more things about the club and
meet some especially nice people.

1:45 - 2:00 pm General Business Meeting
2:00 - 4:00 pm
Special Class for the Whole Club
presented by Phyllis Woods Brown
"The Scales That Can Change Your Life"
We will be diving head first into things that ALL
hammered dulcimer and mountain dulcimer
players should know. . .how to play accompaniment
to melodies...how to play harmonies...how to
survive when there's no music...how to embellish
music you already know...and some exercises to
accomplish all of these things.
Can we do all this in only 2 hours?! Well,
probably not, but we can take a good shot at it!
Also, if time allows, we are going to learn a really
fun yet simple fiddle tune, "Hunting the Buffalo."
