Gwen Meister and Bill Behmer with “The Mountain Dulcimer,” perform at a Humanities Nebraska presentation at the Alliance Public Library on Dec. 9. This delightful program featured several different dulcimers, autoharp and rhythm instruments with folk songs, a Christmas sing-a-long and an original song about Nebraska, in addition to fascinating history of the instruments. In the photo, the audience joined in “Jingle Bells” with Meister and Splinter the Jingle Horse, a “limberjack”, adding a festive touch to our singing. Following their presentation, Meister and Behmer answered questions, shared conversation and gave attendees an opportunity to play the dulcimers. This great presentation is shared through funding with Humanities Nebraska, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, the State of Nebraska and the Alliance Public Library Foundation.
