Second Saturday Clinic With Richard Ash - October 8, 2022

Item Number 90422224, Regular price $40.00

Join in the fun with Richard Ash on this special Second Saturday Clinic hosted by Folkcraft Instruments. We'll have a jam at 10:00, followed by a clinic starting at noon. We'll take a lunch break around 1:00, and resume the clinic after eating. 

The clinic is "hands-on" - bring your mountain dulcimer!

After we wrap up the class at about 4:00, you'll be serenaded with a 30-minute performance by our fair-to-middling instructor.

Richard Ash is the owner of Folkcraft Instruments, is a dulcimer maker, and has taught and performed at dozens of music festivals all around the United States.

Frequently Asked Questions

Location? Folkcraft Instruments Concert Hall, 22133 Main St., Woodburn, Indiana, 46797. We're next door to the Woodburn Post Office, and across the street from a liquor store.

Jam? The jam starts at 10:00 AM - it is a standalone event. The jam isn't part of the clinic, so if you're traveling from a distance, you won't miss any instructional material. But jams are fun, so definitely be here if you can.

Registration? We're limiting registration to 30 guests. Please sign up early - I expect we'll "sell out" on a lot of our Clinics. If you have to cancel, it isn't a problem, but please let us know sooner rather than later. For a full refund, we ask you to let us know no later than midnight (US Eastern time zone) on the Wednesday before the clinic. That'll give us two days to try to fill your seat.

Lunch? Nothing fancy - we'll generally make sandwiches, have a side or two, and bottles of water handy. It'll taste good, and get you through the day without a growling stomach. Lunch is included in your registration fee.

Points? Registering online will allow you to use points (Folkcraft Picking Points, our rewards program) from previous purchases to pay for your registration. And your online registration earns you more points for future products and events at Folkcraft.

Concert? Informal - generally sitting up close and personal with the artist, enjoying some nice music and camaraderie. The concert isn't part of the Clinic, and is free and open to the public.

Skill level required? So long as you know the basics about dulcimer - a bit about reading tablature, how to use a pick, how to tune the instrument, that kind of thing - you'll have fun and learn something new. There are newer players in every clinic, as well as highly skilled musicians, looking for one more "nugget" of information to make them into even better players.

Second Saturday Clinic with John and Karen Keane

I am looking forward to this workshop. I have had both instructors before and they present material in a fun and relaxed way that is very easy to understand. Both are very good dulcimer teachers.

2nd Saturday clinic with John and Karen Keane - August 2022

I have been to their workshop at Folkcraft several years ago. It was great! The concert was great! When Richard decided to have them back again, I was very excited to be able to take live classes from them. Everyone should come and try out their workshops. You will not be sorry. Vickey Sasser
