Workshops/Festivals 2009: (US) The Over the Water Hurdy-Gurdy Festival (Sept. 15-20/09)
Evening events include instructor concerts, an open mike, and many jam sessions (including slow jams for those of us who don't learn tunes at warp speed). On Saturday evening we will gather for a dance party featuring live music by festival participants, who collectively form the largest hurdy-gurdy band in the Western Hemisphere.
