2021 Berea Traditional Dulcimore Gathering

Recommended Posts

Since I can't seem to post in Festivals I thought this should go here.  From The Traditional Appalachian Dulcimore website:

Berea Traditional Dulcimore Gathering 2021
When: June 3 – June 6
Where: Berea College, Berea, KY
Cost: $20 Pre-Registration fee
applied to your total lodging bill, otherwise Free

Because of the events of the past year we must insist on a few conditions this year:

We, and Berea College, need to know IN ADVANCE how many people will be attending. Do not just show up and expect to attend. Even if you live in Berea you MUST Pre-Register to attend any of our activities. The Registration goes towards your On-Campus lodging bill. Not staying on Campus? Your Registration goes into our Coffee & Snacks kitty. REGISTRATION DEADLINE MAY 15th.  

In order to insure that people feel safe during this event, masks are required at all activities. No one without a mask will be allowed to participate in the activities of the Gathering.

We do not yet know which dormitory we will be using.

COMPLETE SCHEDULE OF ACTIVITIES To Be Announced. When we have it sorted out, we'll tell you.

AS ALWAYS – THE EMPHASIS IS ON THE TRADITON. The tuning used by participants is DAA or similar 1 – 5 -5 tuning.. Some tunes may be played in the Aeolian or Dorian modes We are all about traditional dulcimores and dulcimore playing in noter/drone or fingerdancing styles. Contemporary dulcimers are allowed as long as you play them in a traditional manner. This is a great opportunity to learn about the Traditional Appalachian Dulcimore through presentations, instruction, jam sessions, etc. We hope to see you in Berea.

10 Jam Tunes to know are posted with words and tab on The Traditional Appalachian Dulcimore website:  https:thetraditionalappalachiandulcimore.com
