You are invited to attend the annual Fall Folk Concert and enjoy a free performance by Rick Thum. Ranked as the most influential dulcimer player of the last decade by readers of Dulcimer Player News, Rick Thum has made his mark on every aspect of the hammered dulcimer world. Thum is perhaps best known from his latest album, “Front Porch Waltz,” and his festival performances, which have regularly earned him the “most popular performer” title at the largest national dulcimer festival. He placed first at the 1994 Southwest Regional Dulcimer Contest and third in the 1995 National Championship at Winfield, Kan. He was voted Best Performer and Favorite Teacher for several years running at the prestigious Evart Dulcimer Funfest (the oldest and largest dulcimer festival in the nation). He has shared the stage with Mike Seeger, The Tony Rice Unit, Steve Kaufman, Norman Blake, and Bryan Bowers and opened for John Hartford, Norman & Nancy Blake and Leo Kottke. Thum is a popular teacher on the festival circuit and travels across the country playing solo and teaching at music festivals. He currently has three recordings; "Hammered Fiddle Tunes," "A Reason to Dance" and "Front Porch Waltz."
