It's Not Global Warming - It's 2 HOT Florida Winter Events!

Che hun ta mo!

Winter in Florida is going to be sizzling in 2013 as we present two radically different events in the Sunshine State:

The first will be our fourth annual Key West shindig, now known as the Key West Dulcimer GatheringJanuary 24th - 27th, 2013 in Key West, Florida. Butch Ross and I will be presenting mountain dulcimer and ukulele workshops, private lessons and a concert at Casa Cabanas, which was the site of our outing earlier this year with Robert Force and Scott Snyder. No registration fee! The workshops and lessons are pay as you go and we'll once again be sightseeing and enjoying an authentic Cuban cookout at the casa. It'll be laid-back as it can get, for that's the tropical island style! For more information, visit our website at and our Facebook event page at

Then, the following weekend, January 31st - February 3rd, 2013, I'll be joined by Guy and Sharrie George for the first annual Florida Gulf Coast Dulcimer Retreat in Homosassa Springs, Florida, presented by Folkcraft Instruments. $99 registration includes all 26 workshops and Saturday night concert with the focus on mountain dulcimer, hammered dulcimer, Native American flute, penny whistle, ukulele, steel drum and guitar. The site for all of this will be the Homosassa Riverside Resort where we have a discounted block of rooms. This will showcase the old Florida river style, with plenty of opportunity for boating, fishing, scalloping and swimming with manatees. For more information, visit and our Facebook event page at

On February 4th, Guy, Sharrie and I will be leading a RV caravan to the Ft. Wilderness Resort at Walt Disney World for yet MORE musical fun as we camp out on the shores of Bay Lake, jam, hang-out and enjoy all of the fun that a stay at The Magic Kingdom has to offer.

It promises to be a wonderful three weeks of fun in the sun and I hope you'll be able to join us!
