There will be a great selection of Folkcraft and FolkRoots dulcimers on hand - John/Karen Keane are vendors of our instruments, and of course, Richard will bring a few, too. The vending starts Thursday afternoon, and goes through Saturday afternoon. There's a concert both Thursday and Friday evenings, and classes are all day Friday and Saturday. Informal (not too long!) jams take place after both of the evening concerts, and there's plenty of RV parking available at the church.

See  you there!
