Thank you, everybody, for an AMAZING Nutmeg.

We look forward to seeing many of you in '22!



Basic Schedule for the 2021 Nutmeg Dulcimer Festival.

Here's the basic layout. We have 3 tracks of hammered dulcimer (Beginner, Mid-level, and Advanced) ... 4 tracks of mountain dulcimer (Beginner, Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced) (including special mini-tracks for Bass dulcimer, Chromatic dulcimer, and TablEdit) ... and a track of "Other" workshops, which cover a range of topics and other instruments. In every period, there's always a workshop suitable for every level of dulcimer player.


But if you'd rather visit a vendor, zoom-jam with somebody, or hang out with folks in our "Milford Green" common area, that's fine, too! Breakout Rooms will be available for private conversations and informal music-making.


All times on this schedule are Eastern Daylight Time (same time zone as New York). If you're in another time zone, our "meal breaks" may not match your appetite -- but chat with friends, join a jam, or visit the vendors.
