Dan Duggan to Treat Carman Community Room Music Series to Sound of His Hammered Dulcimer

by Mark Bialczak | 4 days ago

The third installment of the Fall Music Series reaches the Dulcimers stage of the proceedings Sunday, Nov. 19.

Dan Duggan and Peggy Lynn will perform original and traditional songs from 2 to 3 p.m. in the Carman Community Room as part of the Pranksters, Fiddlers, Dulcimers and Harpers series.

If you follow Central New York string music, you may have heard about Duggan and his world-level status on the hammered dulcimer.

But you may yet to have had the chance to experience the interesting instrument for yourself.

Thanks to kgentilmanclopp on YouTube from Great Camp Sagamore in the fall of 2014, here's a taste.

Here in the CCR, Duggan and his wife, Peggy Lynn, will be centered on a theme of Thanksgiving and songs of hope. He's looking forward to playing at the LPL, he told me in a phone conversation.

"We’ve done lots of concerts at libraries over the years. I think library concerts are wonderful. They tap into the bases of the community," Duggan says.

The series in presented with the Liverpool Is the Place Committee and made possible by a grant secured by Senator John A. DeFrancisco.

The last concert features the Salt City Harpers with holiday selections at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 18, in the CCR.
