Second Saturday Clinic With Bing Futch, July 13, 2024

Item Number 90104243

Regular price $44.00

Join in the fun with Bing Futch on this special Second Saturday Clinic hosted by Folkcraft Instruments. We'll have a jam at 10:00, followed by a clinic starting at noon. We'll take a lunch break around 1:00, and resume the clinic after eating. 

The clinic is "hands-on" - bring your mountain dulcimer!

After we wrap up the class at about 4:00, you'll be serenaded with a 30-minute performance by our world-class instructor.

Frequently Asked Questions

Location? Folkcraft Instruments Concert Hall, 22133 Main St., Woodburn, Indiana, 46797. We're next door to the Woodburn Post Office, and across the street from a liquor store.

Jam? The jam starts at 10:00 AM - it is a standalone event. The jam isn't part of the clinic, so if you're traveling from a distance, you won't miss any instructional material. But jams are fun, so definitely be here if you can.

Registration? We're limiting registration to 30 guests. Please sign up early - I expect we'll "sell out" on a lot of our Clinics. If you have to cancel, it isn't a problem, but please let us know sooner rather than later. For a full refund, we ask you to let us know no later than midnight (US Eastern time zone) on the Wednesday before the clinic. That'll give us two days to try to fill your seat.

Lunch? Nothing fancy - we'll generally make sandwiches, have a side or two, and bottles of water handy. It'll taste good, and get you through the day without a growling stomach. Lunch is included in your registration fee.

Points? Registering online will allow you to use points (Folkcraft Picking Points, our rewards program) from previous purchases to pay for your registration. And your online registration earns you more points for future products and events at Folkcraft.

Concert? Informal - generally sitting up close and personal with the artist, enjoying some nice music and camaraderie. The concert isn't part of the Clinic, and is free and open to the public.

Skill level required? So long as you know the basics about dulcimer - a bit about reading tablature, how to use a pick, how to tune the instrument, that kind of thing - you'll have fun and learn something new. There are newer players in every clinic, as well as highly skilled musicians, looking for one more "nugget" of information to make them into even better players.

A time to make music with friends!

I really enjoy opening up my cottage, located in northern Indiana, for a weekend during the summer to allow my hometown dulcimer group to have a getaway. We choose a Folkcraft Second Saturday artist we’d like to learn from and the planning begins. Good jamming and singing and fellowship. Organize a few friends to join you but beware— it becomes an annual event! We love it!

Second Saturday with Bing Futch

I attended a Second Saturday with Bing Futch in the past and learned a lot of tips. It was a valuable experience. I needed to sign up first this year’s event as soon as possible. Bing is a great teacher and performer. Very highly recommended. And the Folkcraft facility makes a nice venue for the workshop and mini concert. Looking forward to this year.

Second Saturday Clinic with John and Karen Keane.

John and Karen are excellent teachers for the mountain dulcimer. They have had many years of teaching experience in their careers. They explain things well and demonstrate what they are teaching. It is a pleasure to see them together in concert.

Second Saturday Clinic with Dave Haas

Being in a dulcimer class with Dave Haas is an enjoyable experience. He has a gentle manner in his teaching and truly enjoys what he does. You always come away from his classes with great hints and techniques.
