A special hybrid dulcimer event. You can register one of two ways.

  1. Participate in person on the campus of Western Carolina University
  2. Attend online via Zoom from the comfort of your own home

This will be a full day of workshops featuring multiple part arrangements for standard, baritone and bass dulcimers. Each workshop will be geared toward the intermediate level player who has a working knowledge of the chord-melody style of playing. DAD tuning will be used and all materials will be new for 2022.

Registered participants will be permitted to make one additional copy of each part for use with their ensemble. Multiple copies beyond the allocation can be purchased separately after the workshop has concluded.

All registered participants will receive the tabs and audio practice tracks to use for rehearsal. Whether you prefer the virtual or in-person option, we hope that you will join us for a fun day of making dulcimer music together!

Online again in 2023, this two day event features duets for two standard dulcimers. The classes are suitable for the intermediate level player. Tab books are included in the price for the workshops provided you register before July 15. After that date, you can still register but will only receive the tabs as a digital download. All participants will receive audio practice tracks.

There will be four 45 minute workshops each day. Our schedule typically begins at 10:00 EDT and concludes at 5:00 PM with breaks between each workshop. Times are subject to change. 8-10 songs will be presented over the course of both days.

The cost of the workshop is priced per person, not per household.

Second Saturday Clinic

Folkcraft Instruments, 22133 Main Street, Woodburn, Indiana

Join in the fun with Larry Conger on this special Second Saturday Clinic hosted by Folkcraft Instruments. We'll have a jam at 10:00, followed by a clinic starting at noon. We'll take a lunch break around 1:00, and resume the clinic after eating. The clinic is "hands-on" - bring your mountain dulcimer!

After we wrap up the class at about 4:00, you'll be serenaded with a 30-minute performance by Larry

The class size for this clinic is limited, so we do require pre-registration. Registration will open online (at Folkcraft.com) in early 2023.
