Kentucky State Dulcimer Champion (Posted by Richard Ash on 8/24/2010)
Folkcraft Instruments has sponsored the Kentucky State Dulcimer Championship contest for years now, either directly or through our Louisville dealer, Steilberg Strings.
I got a call in June from Kentucky Music Weekend organizer Nancy Barker, asking if we could donate a "prize" dulcimer for this year's competition. Always glad to help out, I shipped Nancy a really nice dulcimer. Here's a link to the detail page:

After an afternoon of exemplary performances, the three judges (Bing Futch, Stephen Seifert, and Josh Noe - all artists that were part of the 2010 Indiana Dulcimer Festival) came up with a winner:

Bradley Ellis, 2010 Kentucky State Dulcimer Champion

Congratulations to Bradley and to all of the other competitors, too.

We're looking forward to having Bradley and his parents visit our shop one of these days.
Thanks for reading!

When people think of heirloom-quality instruments, they think of Folkcraft. Here's why: Our instruments are handmade in the United States of America, not in a cheap overseas factory. Our instruments are crafted one at a time, not on an assembly line. Our instruments are made of solid woods, not out of plywood.
Folkcraft instruments are made with pride and tradition, using the same methods as our founders used in 1968. Folkcraft Instruments is a family business, with two generations of luthiers putting their skill and experience into every instrument they create.
