Tim Simek, National Hammered Dulcimer Award Winner,

to Entertain At QuiltFest 2017

Tim has been playing the mountain dulcimer and hammered dulcimer for 27 years. Primarily a self-taught musician, Tim got his start with strings after getting a summer job in the dulcimer shop at Dollywood back in the mid 80’s. Part of his job was to demonstrate the mountain dulcimer to the guests. He would play a little bit to lure them over, teach them to play a simple song on the mountain dulcimer by number, and hopefully sell one to them. Tim played around with the hammer dulcimer when business was slow, and before he knew it, he had figured out a couple of simple tunes. The rest of it was just having fun with the instruments…something that most people call practice.

Tim became a full-time musician in 2006 and plays various venues throughout the southeast. He also holds workshops throughout the year. He gives private lessons and is available to play for private events. He is a 2 time national champion, winning the national mountain dulcimer championship in 1993 and the national hammered dulcimer championship in 2011. Tim will provide DVDs and CDs for purchase.
