Instructor/Performer Profile: Aaron O'Rourke

In a very short time, Aaron has made his dulcimer mark performing and teaching. He quickly became one of the headlining names at many dulcimer festivals including the Suwannee Dulcimer Retreat, Augusta Heritage Center (Davis and Elkins College), Western Carolina University’s Dulcimer Week, and Unicoi Dulcimer Fest.

To many dulcimer players, he is the one to bring the dulcimer out of the “dark ages” of folk obscurity, and into the fast-paced world of bluegrass pyrotechnics. To others, Aaron’s performances always reveal a tasteful, well-composed musician. (AaronORourke.com)
