People have loved the sound of plucked strings going back over 3,000 years to the dawn of instrumental music. Plucked Strings plays lots from Appalachian dulcimer to zither with more than a few guitars and you will hear recordings of them from around the globe.
It’s a varied programme of music from the rich world of the guitar and related instruments, notice of events, live performances, new releases, Guitar Society news, and interviews.
