We were a little late with this information last year, but we're on top of it this time! Registration has just opened for the 2016 Hammered Dulcimer Rendezvous (formerly the Spring Fling), which will be held in Sandy, Oregon from April 21st through the 24th. It will be a really fun weekend, featuring workshops and concerts by guest instructors Marina Albero, Sam and Joe Hermann and Ruth Smith, as well as jam sessions, an open mic and general dulcimer camaraderie. There is also often a panel discussion with dulcimer builders about maintenance and technical questions, and as a bonus, our very own Ray Mooers has been known to show up with an air compressor to blow the dust out from under your dulcimer strings!
Registration forms and more details are available at nwdulcimer.com, and we included some photos and other info in this previous blog post so you can get a sense of what the festival is like. For the 2015 Rendezvous, registration was full by February, so don't wait too long to sign up!
