Following a very successful event in early June, with about 1500 individual participants from 7 countries (many from the UK), a second event at the end of August is now planned. Around 30 tutors will teach up to 20 sessions each over the 2 days, in hammered dulcimer, mountain dulcimer plus other instruments such as ukelele and penny whistle. Classes will be at a range of levels.

The Sandbridge Hammered Dulcimer retreat is an annual event with 3 weeks of workshops in the Autumn and 1 in the Spring. You can book for one or more weeks.
The tutor is well known performer and teacher Ken Kolodner, assisted by MaryLynn Van Deventer. This year the Autumn event will be held via zoom, giving UK and European members a chance to attend.
