Widely recognized as one of the finest hammered dulcimer players in the country, Dan Duggan performs a free concert at 2 p.m. on Sunday Feb. 20, at Liverpool Public Library, 310 Tulip St. in Liverpool.
He’ll be accompanied by guitarists Peggy Lynn and Tom Hodgson.
Duggan’s appearance here is part of the fourth annual Folk Music Series hosted by the Friends of Liverpool Public Library.
A resident of Red Creek, Duggan won the National Hammered Dulcimer Championship in the mid-1980s. He was the first winner to have earned the award by performing all original tunes.
Over the year Duggan has released more than a dozen discs including “Once in a Blue Moon,” “Trillium Lane” and “All Through the Night.” In addition to his own compositions, Duggan performs traditional Irish and American tunes such as 18th century harp pieces and vibrant 19th century fiddle tunes.
