Redwood Dulcimer Day

Zoom-Online Festival Register to get the login information, your computer, tablet or phone, your town!

Now in its 21st year, this annual event offers beginning to advanced music workshops on playing both the mountain dulcimer and hammered dulcimer. Redwood Dulcimer Day offers a low-pressure, low stress environment where everyone can relax and have fun playing and learning about the dulcimer and just making music.

This year’s special guest artists are Lois Hornbostel and Ehukai Teves. Also teaching will be Jessica Comeau, Kevin Roth, Neal Hellman, Janet Herman, Peter Tommerup, Steve Eulberg, Laura Devine, Dusty Thorburn, and Ron Beardslee.

Steve is teaching 3 Hammered Dulcimer Workshops at this festival:
1. Modes on the Hammered Dulcimer (Beginner)

Once I discovered that there were (2) TWO basic patterns for playing the classical Greek modes on the hammered dulcimer, I was able to uncover a great many tunes that were just hiding in my instrument, waiting for me to find them! (Note: knowledge of music theory is NOT required for this class, but previous experience at listening and singing or humming songs and tunes is a must.) Students will come away with a firm foundation of how songs work and how they work on the dulcimer. PDF Handouts provided.

  1. Hammer Dulcimer Advancing Beginner/Intermediate Class:

Removing the Expensive Notes. Using a familiar tune (The Ash Grove), we will explore the whole instrument with melodic and harmonic arranging ideas like I've done with Tweaking Twinkles (in Dulcimer Players News).

  1. Three Tunes Walk Into A Bar: A Celtic Exploration on Hammered Dulcimer (Intermediate)

Using different tune-types from Celtic Repertoire (A Reel, A Jig and a Hornpipe), we’ll explore their commonalities, distinctions, and some confusions, in order to develop and hone a skillset that can acquire and play these tunes in a shorter time. We’ll touch on typical ornamentation as well.

$60 for the Saturday workshops, $15 for the Friday concert, or $70 for both.

Fiddle Whamdiddle--In Person!

The Gressiwick, The Gressiwick, 426 N. Lincoln Avenue, Loveland, CO 80537

Fiddle Whamdiddle is high-energy old-timey Americana. Enjoy the exciting cross-pollination of two award-winning instrumentalists, Vi Wickam and Steve Eulberg for an infectiously-fun evening. You’ll be stomping your feet to the zesty mix of hammered dulcimer and fiddle, and you might even catch yourself singing along.

$20 Doors open at 6 pm
