Ed Simmons    Banjo & Dulcimers   Folk Songs & Hymns


In the early 1970s, Ed Simmons, Jr. heard his first Old Time String Music while a student at The University of Virginia, in the beautiful shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

He soon obtained an Appalachian Lap Dulcimer and started learning and collecting old folk songs and hymns, performing in clubs and churches.

He since then has added a second dulcimer and a five-string banjo to his performances.

Also a freelance writer, Ed lives in the historic town of Bowling Green, Virginia.
