Today I was able to attend the dulcimer retreat at Stephen Foster State Park in White Springs, Florida. This is a wonderful venue for a dulcimer festival. Kudos to David Beede for all the work he does to make this festival a success. Stephen Foster State Park is located on the Suwannee river made famous by the song by Stephen Foster. Many different musical events take place at the park. I have been attending this festival for several years. This was the first festival I attended after I took up the Mt. Dulcimer. I was able to catch up with some of the other dulcimer players that I only get to see at these festivals. Everyone I spoke to about my new book was very encouraging. They all can't wait until the book is published. Soon -very soon.
