Dear Musical Friends,

Hi! I'm new to the list and Joe and Mick invited me to post the information about Redwood Dulcimer Day. I have attended this event for many years and have always had a hecka good time. If you're curious about the mountain dulcimer - or already love it - please think about coming to Santa Cruz on July 30. It's a very beautiful, very unusual location, a great group of folks, wonderful instructors and an all-around magical day in the redwood forest.

Yours in music,
Jayme Kelly Curtis (aka Purrgirl, aka Dulcimer Girl!)

I can personally attest that Boomeria is indeed a strange and wondrous place.

I've never made it to Dulcimer Day, though ... this could be the year.
