Wood-N-Strings Workshops Just Announced!

The Pickin' Porch concerts and workshops, held at the Wood-N-Strings Dulcimer Shop in Townsend, Tennessee (on the quiet side of the Smokies) has fast become a hub for great music and instruction each summer and fall. Mike and Connie Clemmer host the festivities, and welcome visitors to the Wood-n-Strings Dulcimer Shop where Mike handcrafts and sells beautiful mountain dulcimers.

We are excited to be on the schedule again - teaching a full slate of workshops during the day, and performing a free concert that evening!

This year, we will be teaching a brand-new workshop titled "A Fresh Approach." The class is open to hammered dulcimer players of all levels and focuses on learning to play without being dependent on hand patterns, memorized arrangements or a dominant hand. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned performer, this class will help you discover a new freedom to play spontaneously and explore your true potential.

Two other classes are also on the schedule, and these include "Playing with Arpeggios," and "Arranging & Re-Arranging: Using the tools of the trade."

The cost to register is $25.00 for one class, $40.00 for two classes, and $50.00 for all three. Space is limited so please contact the Wood-N-Strings Dulcimer Shop to reserve your place today!

We look forward to seeing you there!
