One of the many tragic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic is the nearly universal paralysis of the arts. An important segment of the artistic community includes the dulcimer community.
QuaranTUNE Dulcimer Festival was formed for two purposes. First, to provide a two-day online venue for those who love the music, friendships, and sense of family so unique to dulcimer festivals. And second, to show love and support for dulcimer professionals who also are victims of the many cancelled festivals and workshops. Although they already have had two festivals in 2020, you can sign up to be notified of any future festivals. Their website still includes valuable links to loads of Mountain and Hammered Dulcimer instructors.
