Thread Name: Dulcimer to be Kentucky State Instrument
Subject: RE: Dulcimer to be Kentucky State Instrument
well, Utah says it has the guitar...but San Franciso seems to have gotten the accordian by default...*smile*and so did several other cities//maybe..

" An Internet accordion site says Detroit named the accordion its official instrument in the 1990s, just like Skokie, Ill., and St. Paul, Minn., did. But that's news to fact gatherers for the Detroit Municipal Library, the Detroit Public Library and the city of Detroit's communications office: They have no record of such a thing and consider it unlikely in the home of Motown."
