In addition to the workshops and concerts on Saturday, there are special 4-hour focus workshops the next day taught by two featured performers, both back by popular demand: Fretted dulcimer virtuoso Bing Futch from Florida and hammered dulcimist extraordinaire Jody Marshall of Virginia. Additionally, over a dozen excellent local players will also be teaching and performing, including mountain dulcimer legend Joellen Lapidus and Patti Amelotte’s Irish music band Looney’s Fortune with hot hammered dulcimer, fiddle, guitar and accordions.
The festival will be happening this year at a new, larger location: The Presbyterian Church of the Covenant in beautiful suburban Costa Mesa, CA. There is a ‘festival motel’ with a convenient location and lodging package at a reasonable rate for out of town visitors. Additional information will be at www.scdh.org
As always, there will be a large variety of 'other workshops' - including 'try out' fretted dulcimers (loaner instruments available), guitar, ukulele, keyboard backup, singing, banjomer, music computer software and bowed psaltery (with loaner instruments) - taught by various members of the folk music and dulcimer communities in Southern California. Two tracks of dulcimer workshops will be given by Jody, Bing and six other instructors. You’ll find a full range of topics and hands-on classes in the 28 hours/ 7 tracks of workshops, plus a free Mid-day concert “Celebrating Regional Dulcimer Jam/ Practice Groups” and free jamming throughout the day.
The annual SCDH Dulcimer Festival is the only California dulcimer festival for both hammered and fretted dulcimers and the closest dulcimer festival for players in many nearly states.
