Rob Lackey was born and raised in the Cookson Hills of eastern Oklahoma. After playing the guitar since a small child he discovered the dulcimer in the mid 1980’s, though he had seen them in the Arkansas Ozarks in the 1970’s. A new love was born when he purchased his first dulcimer and began to attempt to transfer the finger style, in which he predominantly played, from the guitar to that instrument. After coming to West Virginia he began to play the instrument in earnest again and is a favorite on the traditional music scene there doing workshops and performing at Gardner Winter Music Fest, Pattyfest, and the Hindman (Ky) Dulcimer Homecoming, the SE Ohio Dulcimer Festival, and the Dutchland Dulcimer Gathering (PA.) He is also co-founder of the Wartz'n'All Dulcimer Gathering now held semiannually in Morgantown, WV
