We are excited to offer a combined hammered dulcimer workshop and concert day with with our two 2024 Annual Weekend Hammered Dulcimer tutors – Jody Marshall and Colin Beasley.

The day offers a chance to take classes online with two tutors who are coming in person this October to our annual weekend. If you can't attend in October or just want a sneak preview of their classes and their approach, this event gives you the perfect opportunity. And while the classes will provide a firm foundation to some of the things covered in October, they are not a pre-requisite and are designed to complement (not duplicate) our October weekend classes. The cost is £20 per workshop.

In addition there is an evening concert featuring both tutors, open to all, whether or not you attend the workshops. We hope to see you there!
