Does this sound like a lot of work without any guarantee of success? Well, yes, but it also calls into question our definition of success. Playing the cello, we’re more likely to realize that the pleasure is the practice, the ability to create this beautiful sound; not to do it as well as Yo-Yo Ma, but still, to touch the hem of the gown that is art itself… I got better at closing the gap between my hand and my head by clocking in the hours, stacking up the pages. Somewhere in all my years of practice, I don’t know where exactly, I arrived at the art.  ~ Ann Patchett

CTO ... Black Mountain Music Fest to be held onsite October 16-21

Yes! Save the date... October 16-21, 2021. Plans are in the making.

Check This Out ... The contract has been signed with the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly in Black Mountain, NC. New protocols and setup are in place. Registration is expected to begin by the end of April.

Those who did not get a refund from 2020 will have the option to carry last year's registration payment forward to this year.

2021 will be a "transitional" year. Some things will be different... but overall the same good old time with all our dulcimer friends! Stay tuned for more info: Black Mountain Music Fest
