Great times!

It was a very good time at what has turned out to be the very first Key West Dulcimer Gathering.  Though we had to cancel the larger planned festival - this laid-back and low-key gathering turned out really nice, especially with Robert Force and Scott Snyder there along with island local Gary Zimmerman.  We did workshops and jams, had awesome Cuban food at Casa Cabanas, went sightseeing at Ft. Zachary Taylor and experienced some of the Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square.

Best of all - we hung out, made music and enjoyed the wonderful weather of the sub-tropics in the month of January.

We've definitely decided to continue on in this vein with next year's featured performer being Butch Ross.  I'll be there as well, and we'll both be offering workshops, private lessons and an informal concert.

Thanks to everyone who came out and shared the experience with us - I'll post some pics and video here so you can see how it all played out.  Hope to see you in 2013!

Sho na bish,
