Item number 2019IDF, Regular price $120.00

July 13 and July 14, 2019
Woodburn, Indiana

Synopsis: Woodburn, Indiana dulcimer festival, hosted by Folkcraft Instruments. Held at the Folkcraft concert hall and wood shop. Choose the classes you want the morning of the festival. Take classes, eat food, go to the concert, make music with the instructors and the other attendees. Why? To learn something, and to have fun. We're cutting off registration at 50 people, so that the festival will stay small and intimate.

Artist/instructors: The 2019 Indiana Dulcimer Festival (IDF) features some of the best artist/instructors on planet earth - Bing Futch, Dave Haas, John Keane, Karen Keane, and Wendy Songe. They're ALL Folkcraft Endorsing Artists. We are really lucky to have this amazing roster of instructors booked for the 2019 IDF. Click here to see their biographies.

Classes: We're offering a total of twelve classes, and you can see the class choices the morning of the festival. Maybe we'll have the actual classes online before registration closes, but there are no guarantees. But... With Bing, Dave, John, Karen, and Wendy each offering two classes, you're sure to find classes to love! We aren't doing class selection online - when you come to the festival, you can just "go" to the classes that appeal to you that day.

Where to stay: We're recommending that you stay at the Hampton Inn in Fort Wayne. Here's the address: 3520 East Dupont Road, Fort Wayne, Indiana, 46825. Their phone number is (260) 483-3999. The hotel does allow jamming after hours in the lobby, so be sure to bring your instrument back to the hotel!
