Country Strings (Shari, Steve, Dot, Don, Joyce, Mary)

Welcome to the home page of Country Strings, an old-time string band based out of central Eastern Indiana and Western Ohio.  We specialize in a wide variety of acoustic music played on traditional instruments.  You'll find us playing for dulcimer-based music festivals, historical events, church programs, retirement centers, nursing homes, and for those folks who appreciate acoustic traditional, old-time, Gospel, and dulcimer music.

A project that brings to us an exciting challenge each year is  ...

Country String's 15th Annual 

Old-Time Gospel Music Retreat

For 15 years, Country Strings sponsored this weekend of music workshops geared to the mountain dulcimer, hammered dulcimer, and autoharp, Bible Study, and devotions at the Golden Eagle Christian Center in Palestine, Ohio.  Saturday night featured a community Gospel Sing with usually 50 to 100 folks sharing our music with us.   Our last Retreat was in October of 2015.  

Do stop back to this website, for any upcoming events that would feature of our Christian Outreach and love of the old-time Gospels.


Piqua Players

Even though Piqua Players is no longer inexistence, we draw continually on the experience.

Country Strings provided music for two Piqua Players' productions.  Country Strings' love of old-time Gospel music lent itself well to the May, 2003 production of "Smoke on the Mountain" and then again in October, 2004 to "Smoke's" sequel, the 'Sander's Family Christmas'.

We had a great time working on these productions and thank Brenda Vetter and the great cast of 'Smoke.'  Check out the picture below.

Thanks for stopping by our web page and we hope you enjoy your visit and that you
will come back often.
