Hi Ellie -
I got your email from the club list at EverythingDulcimer.com. (If I worked Google Maps right, that's about a 7-hour drive from McLean - a bit of a hike, but worth it for almost a week of music:)
Our web site is at http://BlackMountainMusicFest.com and there are details there about the classes and registration. The classes are about 2/3 mountain dulcimer, 1/3 hammered, with the occasional other instrument as well. The hammered dulcimer instructors are Rick Thum, Dan Landrum, Amber Rogers, and Joshua Messick.
I've attached a PDF file that's a mini-poster listing the teachers and more information.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me.
Regards, Bill Wake 804-519-6799 email@example.com

Plein Air Painter and hammered dulcimist, Jeanean Songco Martin and myself are again teaming up to run a week-long "Painting & Music Camp". Ireland was our destination in 2013 and 2015 (and again in 2017!) but this time we're headed west- "California Dreamin' and Old World Jam" in Pismo Beach, California, August 7-15. We've brought Paul Oorts on board to teach a mixed instrument class, as well as my hammered dulcimer class, while the painters go out daily to various beautiful spots along the coast!
The music classes will be working on the same fun bal folk repertoire (think French bourrees, mazurkas, polkas, Spanish Muiñeiras and more!) so we will have plenty of music to jam with when we're not in class, at the beach, hiking, sipping wine and resting!
Painters go here for details and check out Session II at: http://jeaneansongcomartin.com/workshops

Don't hesitate to contact me for more details. Hope to see some of you in Pismo Beach!
