Barbara Gershman first heard the Hammered Dulcimer on a recording in a Yosemite gift shop and found one of the few Southland hammered dulcimer teachers. Learning to play the dulcimer provided balance to a 31 year community college teaching career (Nutrition & Family & Consumer Sciences) and also led to many friendships, musical opportunities and a retirement career. Barbara performs frequently at a variety of public and private events throughout Southern California, and is VP and co-director of Southern California Dulcimer Heritage nonprofit’s annual festival in Redondo Beach, to help keep traditional music alive.
