The Mountain Dulcimers of Aiken, a group established in 2011, gave a performance in an unusual setting June 1, playing in a cul-de-sac at the invitation of some neighbors in Houndslake, with emphasis on a small gathering in a secure, outdoor setting with plenty of "social distancing." The group's members on board for the afternoon event were Lani Snug, Gary Warnock, Ginny Busbee, Larry Gleason and Carmen Armstrong.
