Joh n J. Niles
Having been the only man in the
country to collect the . native folk
songs of the Appalachian mountain-
eers is not the only distinction held
by tenor John Jacob Niles, who will
appear at the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre, Tuesday, April 8.
Niles is also known because of
the unusual instrument with which
he accompanies himself while sing-
ing the spirituals and ballads of na-
tive Americans. The instrument-
a dulcimer-dates back to the Bible'
and is also known as a psaltery, for
a rabeck and belongs, to the same
family as the zither and citole.
While dulcimers are still used in
the mountains today, they are being
rapidly replaced by guitars. This is
not because of the musical superior-
ity of the latter. The reason is much
more, obvious than that. Dulcimers
must be made by hand and cannot
be purchased in stores.
The dulcimer has a distingushed
history,dhaving been used in Eng-
lish courts and one of the figures'
shown on the outside of Canterbury
Cathedral is shown holding an in-
strument that resembles the dulcimer
now used in the southern mountains.
The fundamental characteristics-
no neck, with the keyboard on top
of the body-are the same.
Because the dulcimer will produce
quarter and eighth-tone notes that
do not exist on the piano, it is ad-
vantageous for vocal accompaniment.
Each one is tuned to a single key
and Niles himself made the two he
carries with him.
