When played, the dulcimer strings create a consistent hum or drone effect. The Eagle Flats Brats group was formed when the dulcimer was featured during the Vintage Vernon Festival in 2011. The group has a regular roster of 10-20 people and they play all kinds of beautiful music with the distinctive instruments, including gospel, old-time fiddle tunes, cowboy music and church songs.
