Dulcimer Guy to Perform Local Halloween Programs October 31st

Ghosts come calling in the night. Spirits haunt lakes and well-beaten paths. An ancient thumb waits in a box. A young girl is witched and a mutant vegetable stalks the swamps. Spiders wait in the corner until youíre asleep and then. . .!

Chills, hmmmís, uh-ohís, gasps and a few laughs are in store when Mike Anderson, the Dulcimer Guy, tells and sings spooky Halloween tales October 31st at Scotland County Memorial Library at 10:30 a.m. for children and at the Memphis Cinema at 2:00 p.m. for all ages. Admission is free to both performances.

Mike Anderson is one of the most versatile folk performers and educators in the Midwest. Under Mikeís leadership, the New Salem Storytelling Festival, and the Clayville Music and Storytelling Festival before that, became events of national renown. Mike is also nationally renown, appearing at the National Mountain Music Festival, holding a prestigious position on the faculty of the Mountain Dulcimer Workshop at Appalachian State University, Boone, NC and West Carolina University, NC, Dulcimer Workshops and presenting workshops and concerts across the U.S.

He received a National Childrenís television award for his show ďMikeís Music Works.Ē Under the auspices of the Illinois State Board of Education, Mike has conducted many teacher and parent workshops for developing literacy through the art of storytelling.

Mike plays guitar, banjo, jaw harp, noseflute, bones, and more. He is best known as an outstanding mountain dulcimer player Ė one of the very best in the state and indeed the entire Midwest.
