COFFEE HOUSE EVENT  HOSTED BY MICHAEL VICKEY
Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park

Date: Saturday, March 7, 2015. 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Description:

Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park will host a Coffee House hosted by Michael Vickey in the park auditorium on Saturday, March 7, 2015.

Michael Vickey has played Appalachian dulcimer for over 40 years, and hammered dulcimer for more than 17 years.  He has won numerous dulcimer competitions, and most recently has been the State of Florida Old Time Music Hammered Dulcimer Champion and Mountain Dulcimer Champion. His devotion to the dulcimer and traditional American music is shared with the other members of The Good For Nuthin String Band and he has written a number of tunes in the traditional style- several of which can be heard on the band’s CD’s. Michael is a lifelong resident of Northwestern Pennsylvania and is the owner of a graphic design and printing business. He travels the south extensively as a solo musician, where he performs traditional early American music while seeking out new tunes to share with his band back home.

2011- US Mid-East Regional Hammered Dulcimer -1st Place

2012 Florida Old Time Music Championships Hammered Dulcimer – 1st place

2012 Florida Old Time Music Championships Mountain Dulcimer – 1st place

The Stephen Foster Coffee House event invites visitors onstage for 10 minutes to sing, play a musical instrument, read some original poetry or tell a story. Artists are requested to arrive at least 10 minutes early for sign up and perform material suitable for all ages. Coffee house is an extremely popular event held in the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park and with no admission fee; seating tends to fill up quickly.
