The Singing Zither

Jingle Bells/Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer
The Singing Zither
Christmas & Old Time Hymns
Willie Dittrich
Jim Loyd Presents (WMT Radio, Cedar Rapids, Iowa)

Here's a fun private press album found today at one of the thrifts I frequent.

From the back cover: The Singing Zither belongs to Willie Dittrich of the Amana Colonies in Iowa (Homestead, Iowa).

Although none of the venues are named, Dittrich played at least one local restaurant as well as other local venues including "one of eastern Iowa's local television programs."

  1. HOW MAGICAL! I love the Ruth Welcome zither records. It's fun to have found a holidayzither record! What a beautiful sounding instrument!


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
