The Lagniappe Dulcimer Fete hosted the 2019 Fete Dulcimers on the Delta Thursday, March 7 through Sunday, March 10 at the West Baton Rouge Museum and Port Allen Community Center.

The 18th annual Dulcimer Fete weekend was filled with workshops, jam sessions and concerts all featuring nationally-recognized musicians.

The mountain dulcimer is a fretted and 3-stringed instrument held on one’s lap and strummed to play a song’s melody and harmonies. It is the only musical instrument truly originating in America. It has seen a revival in recent years due to the ease of learning to play it and the satisfaction of mastering the dulcimer.
