July 31st Uncommon Instruments Awareness Day

There are all sorts of musical instruments out there some that have not been used in centuries such as the psaltery, played in the Middle Ages.


You may have heard a dulcimer in some country music but never knew what sound it made.


There is a bubble organ which is relatively new on the scene. In fact you may have heard it and never knew it.


If that’s the case, then this day is for you. It’s your chance to learn what a clackamore is…


or how a double violin sounds…


and whether a laser harp is dangerous to play or not.


How to celebrate: Look up some of the forgotten, and newest, instruments used to make music. Try to obtain one of these instruments and learn how to play it. Amaze your friends with a concert on your newly acquired musical instrument.
