What's New ... 

WE'RE AVAILABLE FOR "VIRTUAL" CLASSES AND PERFORMANCES! Mark your calendars for our first event:

32nd Annual Fall Festival

Thurs., Nov. 19 thru Sat., Nov. 21, 2020

WWW.NGFDA.COM./2020VIRTUAL

 

Lois and Ehukai will be teaching mountain dulcimer and ukulele classes "virtually" at this festival! It's long been a favorite event of dulcimer players. Respecting social distances, like many other events, it will be "virtual" on the internet this year. 

The one-hour classes using the free "Zoom" program are very popular, help musical artists earn a living, and are very inexpensive for participants ($11 per workshop!). You can take the classes in the comfort of your own home, need not travel or pay for other lodging to participate. Even if you live in a different part of the world and have internet, you can still take these classes!

Please visit Lois Hornbostel's Facebook page for a list of all the classes she and Ehukai Teves will be teaching, the concert in which they will play, and other details of the festival. Registrations will open September 3 and classes are expected to fill fast.
