Jonesborough’s Dulcimer Week takes place May 14 through May 20

Jonesborough’s Dulcimer Week celebrates the role of the Appalachian mountain dulcimer in American life with seven days of dulcimer-infused performances, workshops and hands-on opportunities to experience the dulcimer and other forms of art in Tennessee’s Oldest Town.
