Summertime music at Humpback Rocks

Sunday strumming on the Blue Ridge Parkway

Playing under the oak tree by Joe Clark’s log cabin at the Humpback Visitors Center on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Jan and Tom Scanlan, Patricia Cash, Shannon Tate, Debbie Campbell and Carole Ralston, along with other club members, played at Humpback Rocks, Milepost 6 on the Blue Ridge Parkway, every 2nd and 4th Sunday afternoon of the summer months, June through September, weather permitting. Lots of visitors at the Visitor Center stop by to learn about the Appalachian Mountain Dulcimer and to listen to some old-time tunes. We met visitors from many states and several other countries. Perhaps the most memorable visitors, however, were the black bears. The music must have been to one of the bear’s liking – he came back another Sunday to hear some more!
