You have your choice of some workshops and concerts ONLINE via ZOOM, small groups for jams and some workshops IN-PERSON and a few HYBRID events.

Thanks to an active planning committee that has met monthly on Zoom since December, we have a variety of events to offer for Hammered Dulcimer, Mountain Dulcimer and Other Instruments plus 2 Concerts.
