The Tennessee Valley Strummers will return to the Florence/Lauderdale Visitor Center in McFarland Park to play dulcimer music in the Gallery on Friday, October 21, from 2 to 4 p.m.

The dulcimer, which means “sweet sound,” is a four-stringed instrument developed in the 1700s in the southern Appalachian Mountains.

The featured players use a tablature system of playing, based on fret numbers, which enables them to play with others – even if they have never met before.  

Visitors are encouraged to come out and listen to the music and tour the center.

For more information, call the Florence/Lauderdale Tourism Office at 256-740-4141.
