The first Memphis Dulcimer Gathering & Folk Festival was held
Sept. 30 & Oct. 1, 2005, at Calvary Episcopal Church in Memphis, TN. We had a blast!
Many thanks to all those who attended and volunteered. We
couldn't have done it without all the terrific support of our friends!!
We had two days filled with workshops, concerts and jam sessions
for mountain and hammered dulcimer. We also had instruction for mandolin, banjo, guitar, autoharp and Celtic
harp. Instructors and performers included Janita Baker, Larkin Kelley Bryant, Larry Conger, Jim Miller, Don Pedi and
Rick Thum. Participants came from as far away as New York, Minnesota, Florida, Missouri and California.
It was a truly magical weekend!
Many special thanks to David, Debbie and Larry for providing
pictures for everyone to enjoy.
