Instrumental Peace of Mind

Roger King, a musical instrument builder from Louisville, Ky., visited Lindsey Wilson College recently to showcase some of his creations in the lobby of the Begley Gallery in the Slider Arts & Humanities Center. King met with students, faculty, and guests to discuss the finer points of building musical instruments and the careful selection of wood that goes into the process. He also discussed the history of the dulcimer and entertained his audience with several songs. Some of King's instruments will remain on display in the lobby of the Begley Gallery until May.
