Erin Mae Lewis, featured teaching artist

Erin Mae is a mountain dulcimer virtuosa who has taken an obscure American folk instrument, and with it has developed a high level of technical proficiency and musical expression. Erin has been playing for over twenty years and in that time has developed a unique and progressive style. She performs extensively as part of a duo, Scenic Roots. Carrying the rhythm section with her signature percussive chop and flat-picking fiddle tunes with impressive dexterity; audiences nationwide show amazement as they watch her fingers dance over her dulcimer strings. One guitar player quipped, “Erin can do more with three strings than I can do with six.” https://www.erinmaemusic.com/

Steve Eulberg, Artistic Director

Steve is a versatile full-time folk musician who specializes in fretted and hammered dulcimers, but his first instrument was his mother’s ukulele. He later bought a kit and built his first mountain dulcimer. It’s been love ever since – through a career performing folk for kids to seniors, as a composer, and as an inner-city pastor, this award-winning touring musician brings joy to all who hear him. He’s been called an Appalachian Jimmy Buffett because of his personable stage presence and warm voice. Steve plays the dulci-bro, banjammer, electric dulcimer and baritone dulcimer, guitar, bass, mandolin, piano and hand percussion. He is a five-time Winfield, KS National Winner in Mountain Dulcimer and a three-time National Finalist for Hammered Dulcimer. He has produced 15 recordings. https://www.owlmountainmusic.com

Neal Hellman

Nationally acclaimed performer and teacher of the mountain dulcimer, Neal has been active in performing, writing, teaching, and recording acoustic music for the past 30 years. His latest recording, Emma’s Waltz, is a colorful dance through traditional and contemporary acoustic music styles. He is the author of many books on the Appalachian dulcimer, including Celtic Songs & Slow Airs for Mountain Dulcimer, The Dulcimer Chord Book, The Hal Leonard Dulcimer Method, and Music of the World for Mountain Dulcimer. As founder, director and one of the primary artists of the Gourd Music record label, Neal has produced over forty albums, creating a uniquely distinctive sound and featuring a variety of acoustic instrumental ensembles, rich in texture and tonal color. https://gourd.com/
