November 3-4 - 8th Annual New Mexico Dulcimer Festival
This year they will feature Aubrey Atwater with husband Elwood Donnelly plus Joe Collins on mountain dulcimer, and Wes Chappell and Randy Marchany from No Strings Attached on hammered dulcimer. Tina Gugeler, David Ellison, and Irma Reeder will also be teaching dulcimer. They will again feature over 40 workshops including numerous non-dulcimer classes. When they had Aubrey (solo) out at their first festival in 2010, attendees told them they wished she had given a clogging workshop. Well, they’ve talked her into doing just that for this year! Workshop schedule is in progress, but the rest of the website is updated and they are now accepting registrations. Plan to join them in November! All the info you need is at their web site.
