Friends in Spokane are hosting an outdoor concert at their home, and a different friend has hired us to play at her annual party the next day. These events are private, by invitation and reservation only. If you’d like to have us do a house concert for you, send us an email – we can explain how it’s done. It’s fun and easy!

Classes are offered in beginning, intermediate and advanced levels for three days, with several instructors including Rob Brereton and Aubrey Atwater and others, plus there will be a staff concert on Friday night.

Heidi will be returning to Cedar Lakes Conference Center for her 12 year. This beginning dulcimer class will establish complete beginners in all the basics, and progress into how to play chords, read tablature, and use a range of techniques. There will be some exposure to elementary flatpicking and fingerpicking later in the week. Students will learn at least 20 songs and take home many handouts to practice on their own.
