Caroline County’s concert season continues at the Caroline County Public Library’s Central Library in Denton with the sounds of hammered dulcimer virtuoso Walt Michael & Co. on Friday, February 16 at 7:00 pm. Admission is free.
Considered to be a virtuoso of tremendous influence in the revival of the hammered dulcimer, Walt Michael’s wide repertoire ranges from old-time Southern Appalachian to Celtic. His 35 years of musical performances ranged from the coal camps of Appalachia to the White House to the Closing Ceremonies of the 13th Olympic Winter Games. Walt is the Artist in Residence at McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland, as well as founder and Executive Director of Common Ground on the Hill, an international traditional arts organization that seeks to promote interracial harmony through the traditional arts.
