Arkladulcifest
Congo Road Baptist Church
Benton, Arkansas

Join the fun (learning from great teachers, listening to two amazing concerts) at the 2018 Arkladulcifest. Featuring instructors John Keane, Karen Keane, Linda Brockinton, Duane Porterfield, Dave Haas, and Folkcraft's very own Richard Ash, this is an amazing event.

There will be a great selection of Folkcraft and FolkRoots dulcimers on hand - John/Karen Keane and Dave Haas are both vendors of our instruments, and of course, Richard will bring a few, too. The vending starts Thursday afternoon, and goes through Saturday afternoon. There's a concert both Thursday and Friday evenings, and classes are all day Friday and Saturday. Informal (not too long!) jams take place after both of the evening concerts, and there's plenty of RV parking available at the church.

See  you there!
