Elizabethtown: More Than Just A Movie
Think of the US cities that would most likely have a large ukulele community. Places like New York, Los Angeles or Las Vegas might come to mind, but lesser-known cities like Elizabethtown, Kentucky are getting in on the action too.
Known as the backdrop for the Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst movie, Elizabethtown, and home of Fort Knox, Kentucky’s northern city might not look like your typical Hawaiian paradise, but the sweet sounds of the ukulele that emit from here say different.
The Heartland Dulcimer Club in Elizabethtown is an educational, non-profit organization that endeavors to share the music of the mountain dulcimer, the hammered dulcimer, and other traditional stringed instruments – like the ukulele.
Meetings take place on the first and third Monday of every month (barring major holidays) at the First Presbyterian Church (1016 Pear Orchard Road in Elizabethtown). The club is first and foremost about the mountain and hammer dulcimer, but individuals who play other traditional instruments (guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, autoharp, and – of course – the ukulele) are also encouraged to join.
Currently, the Heartland Dulcimer Club boasts an impressive list of instruments at meetings: The ukulele, mandolin, autoharp, guitar, marimbula, penny whistle, bowed dulcimer, bowed psaltery, accordion, harmonica and mountain and hammered dulcimers are often present at general meetings. As the group stresses on their Facebook page, the Heartland Dulcimer Club is not just a dulcimer club, despite what its name might suggest. They welcome instrumentalists from all walks of life and encourage ukulele players to join.
Initial membership is $25. Members will receive access to the club’s music library, copy of current playlists and a subscription to the monthly newsletter for this price. For subsequent years, a donation of $10 is appreciated. The donation is tax-deductible as the club is a registered non-profit, tax-exempt organization.
Of course, ukulele players looking to dip their toes before submerging themselves into the Heartland Dulcimer Club can first attend a meeting or two before deciding to join.
If an all-ukulele club is what your after, the Lexingtones, meet every Monday at 7:00pm at The Hive Salon in Lexington, an hour and a half drive away from Elizabethtown.
