Irma Reeder (Albuquerque, NM)
Irma Reeder(Mountain Dulcimer workshops) Irma was born in Texas, but grew up in Germany. Her family provided a strong early music influence, coming from generations of Ozark mountain musicians, including several fiddle makers. Singing melody and harmony with her family long before grade school, her mother taught her to play an open-G guitar using a pencil as a noter before her hand was big enough to reach around a guitar neck. She taught her first guitar student when she was 10, and has been teaching steadily since age 15. Irma started directing vocal and instrumental ensembles as a teen. She studied vocal performance for over 3 decades, and also studied conducting. Irma has been soprano soloist with symphony and theater groups, the Michael Iatauro Jazz Quartet, and performed with chorales and light opera and opera companies. She has been a church music administrator/choir director since 1982. Irma started playing mountain dulcimer in 2005. She is the 2009 Colorado State Mountain Dulcimer Champion, the 2011 Texas State Champion, and was a finalist at the 2010 Southern Regional championships in Arkansas. Irma is a board member and regular workshop leader of the Albuquerque Folk Festival, and co-founded the New Mexico Dulcimer Festival where she is Association President, Festival Director, and an instructor. Irma is music administrator and choir director at Faith Bible Church in Albuquerque, leads the Wing & a Prayer old-time/cowboy/country Gospel band, and performs with her husband, Scott, DBA Music for All Seasons.
