In the winter of 2018, through support of the National Endowment for the Arts and the Indiana Arts Commission, Traditional Arts Indiana partnered with Kara Barnard to host a Silver Strings program at the Salem Public Library. Washington County has a strong tradition of music making, and in the past thirty years, the mountain dulcimer has become popular in the region and are commonly seen at community jams.
