Dulcimer events in US next Easter

We're hoping to visit the Eastern USA next Easter. Does anyone have info on Mountain Dulcimer events around that time? (10th April onward for 3 weeks). We'd like to build our trip around some Old Time and Mountain Dulcimer events.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks

Probably a little late for you, but May 16-18 are Dulcimer Days in historic Roscoe Village near Coshocton in eastern Ohio. It's a beautiful setting, draws LOADS of players and is sponsored by a music shop in the village, Wildwood Music, which sells outstanding instruments (guitars too). There are Hammered players on every corner and in every store and lap players just about anyplace they can find a piece of open lawn or street. The village itself is a restored canal town from the Ohio Canal days. It's a wonderful fest!!!

Thanks for the correction Dulci.
I mistakenly got the dates from their 2002 program.

Sorry for the delay replying - We've been away for a 5-day break in Ireland - WOW!!! - playing dulcimer and hurdy gurdy in some very Irish sessions and weren't allowed to buy a drink. Musicians go free!

Anyway, thanks to you all for the information, we're planning the winter away.

The Upper Potomac Dulcimer Fest in and around Shepherdstown, West Virginia, is good. You can read about it on this website.

They don't seem to have the spring 2003 information up yet, but you can e-mail Joanie Blanton at the following address for more information...
