Bob Fagan discovered the sweet sounds of the Appalachian Dulcimer while on a camping trip in 1978, bought his first instrument in 1979, and has never looked back.  Since joining the Calliope Board in 2008, he has taught this uniquely American instrument to lots of folks through the Calliope School of Folk Music, both in group classes and in individual/private lessons.  An avid dulcimer player, while a member of the group Hands All Around, he wrote and produced all the tunes on the two children’s CDs, “We Were All Meant to Fly” and “So Much Fun to Pretend.”
