Dulcimer Players News, Volume 45, No. 1 (Feb 2019) arrived in mailboxes more than a week ago while I was hiking over snow-covered trails in the Flat Irons of Colorado. I'm always thrilled to receive DPN in the mail. I usually sit right down and page through the entire magazine to see what's happening in the greater dulcimer world.
But Check This Out ... the current publication happens to be of special interest to me because it includes an article that I wrote!
The most recent magazine includes several articles around the theme of festivals and workshops. You'll find a calendar listing of 2019 festivals and a "how-to" guide for attending festivals. My article is about the friendships and community that develop out of these events, drawing from my own experiences at the Swannanoa Gathering, Warren Wilson College, Black Mountain, NC and Ken Kolodner's Sandbridge Hammered Dulcimer Retreat at Sandbridge, VA. Trapezoids of the Triangle will recognize names mentioned and faces pictured.
