CTO ... HD returning to W-S Dulcimer Festival in 2020

Many of us were sad when the long-standing Winston-Salem Dulcimer Festival hit hard times and had to be reconfigured back in 2016. The Camel City Strummers took it on, but in a smaller, more manageable form. Unfortunately, the hd players had to be left out.

Check This Out ...  Fast forward to 2020, the 26th year of the festival. The hammered dulcimers are invited back! It will be a different format than attendees from previous years remember. The festival is now one day only, with one morning session and one afternoon session offered by one instructor for hammered dulcimer players. This year's instructor will be Marya Katz, of Blacksburg, VA. Many Trapezoids of the Triangle are familiar with Marya's teaching. Many have attended her annual MLK Day workshops.

Save the date! May 2, 2020
More specific details to be announced at a later time
