Children’s Workshop 2017

Children’s Mountain Dulcimer Workshop

The Colorado Dulcimer Festival is offering a new workshop at the 2017 Festival: “Children’s Mountain Dulcimer Workshop.”  Geared to children ages 8-12, no previous experience is required. Practice dulcimers will be provided for use in the workshop.

The children will receive instruction on the Mountain Dulcimer, will learn to play a tune, and will learn a traditional dance that will be danced in the Festival’s Contra Dance led by Chris Kermiet following the children’s workshop.

The workshop will be held on Saturday, February 4, 1:30 p.m. to 4:20 p.m., and the Contra Dance will begin at 4:30 p.m. and end around 5:45 p.m. The staff for the workshop will be three very accomplished Mountain Dulcimer musicians, each of whom has teaching experience with this age group.

The cost of this workshop is $40.00.  This will include the Mountain Dulcimer workshop, the Contra Dance, and one ticket to the Saturday Evening Concert.
