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.
