Kentucky Music Week
June 24, 2022
I'm writing this week's "In the Shop" feature from the Folkcraft display at Kentucky Music Week. KMW is one of the oldest, and biggest, dulcimer festivals anywhere. Typically hundreds of musicians, getting together for classes, jams, and concerts.
I don't teach or perform at this festival, so I can dedicate all my time to helping players choose their next instruments. I brought a few dozen instruments to the south side of Louisville last weekend and will be here through Friday afternoon.
Two photos are included here. The first one is a new friend, pointing to one of our displays - like Vanna White, excitedly pointing at a vowel! The other (see below) is a wider shot of the KMW vending area.
Dulcimer festivals are great fun and awesome learning venues. I'll be in Evart, Michigan, in July, and then in Black Mountain, North Carolina, this fall.

I hope to see y'all at a festival this year!
