12th Annual Colorado Dulcimer Festival

February 6, 2015 - February 7, 2015

12th Annual Colorado Dulcimer Festival
Come and learn how to play, or improve your current technique on the Mountain or Hammered Dulcimer. This is an entertaining, educational festival (held at St. James Presbyterian Church 3601 West Bellvue Avenue, Littleton, Colorado 80123) with 2 days of workshops on February 6 and 7th, 2015. Classes are available for absolute beginners to advanced players. Rental Instruments are available. You will encounter many styles of music, from Celtic to Old-time to Bluegrass and sometimes even Jazz or ragtime! There are multiple jam sessions on both days and concerts both evenings. We have “headliner” teachers, nationally known players from out of state who teach both instruments, and also several wonderful local teachers. Our Headliner teachers this year are Heidi Muller (mountain dulcimer) from Oregon, and Guy George (hammered dulcimer) from Ohio. Our local teachers will be Bonnie Carol, Steve Eulberg, Tina Gugeler, Karen Alley, Eric Elliot, Malacha Hall, and Judy Jones. Many of our instructors also play in the 2 nightly concerts, so be sure to come hear these instruments played by some of the best performers in the country!
Concerts are open to the public, with tickets available at the door both nights (concerts will be from 7-9:30 pm).
Special rates are available for rooms reserved at local hotels (see the website for more information on lodging and maps)
If you are curious to hear or are interested in learning either of these wonderful instruments, attend the workshops and/or come to the concerts!
