What a fabulous (and exhausting!) weekend! Thanks to all the volunteers, musicians, sponsors and the crowds who came-out to hear some of the best traditional music you'll hear anywhere. Classes were fabulous and I think all involved went away with at least one new tune and some technique to work on. Stay tuned for photos from the weekend and keep checking back for details about next year's event!
