Another of Stephen’s workshops—this time at the foot of the Smokies in Townsend, Tennessee at Mike and Connie’s Wood-n-Strings Dulcimer Shop— was so intensive that our Mary Lawrence decided to throw an end-of-workshop party for all participants. Stephen, Heather, Mike and Connie and their family joined us to blow off a little steam and have some fun. We all gathered at the gorgeous back porch of her little place on the river for hot dogs and potluck to marvel at both what we learned in the workshop and what we were all grateful for: a master teacher and the Clemmers, who are always so warm and friendly to all of us. We met some amazing players who were serious jammers and, after our dinner, we had a ball playing old and new songs on the porch. Our new friends meet regularly on Monday nights here in Townsend and invited all of us to come back soon. We can’t wait to take them up on their invitation. Enjoy the short video below that brings back a very happy time!
