Glen Rose 2020
Note from Dana Hamilton:
I spoke with Oakdale Park this morning (16 March) regarding the CDC's
recommendation that groups of 50 not meet for 8 weeks. I
wanted to get the city's view on the festival. They informed
me that the plan was to go ahead with the festival. We will
come at the end of the 8 week period so hopefully everything
will be better by then and everyone will want to get out of
their houses, apartments, campers, tents and whatever and
enjoy the great weather, great fellowship, and great music we
have planned for the 38th Annual Lone Star State Dulcimer
Festival. We will be watching to see how things develop and
will inform everyone when and if anything changes. I am so
confident that we are going to go ahead with the festival that
I am attaching a "TENTATIVE" schedule of events.
(See link below.) Names listed
in italics are folks I have not heard from. If you know them
tell them to drop me an email assuring me of their knowledge
of the times and sets. Thanks to those of you that have
dropped me an email about possible meeting sites. I am
currently looking into those suggestions and will inform the
club when we reach a decision. So pass the word. Glen Rose
is ON for 2020. Spread it around.
Your friend and mine, Dana
The Lone Star State Dulcimer Festival, AKA "Glen Rose", because it is held every year in Glen Rose, Texas at Oakdale Park, will be held on May 8-10 this year.
Featured performers this year include: Karen Mueller on mountain dulcimer, autoharp, guitar, and who knows what else. The great Irish band from Kansas City, Tullamore will be joining us again with workshop on fiddle, guitar, singing, and Irish music and arranging. We will also have a reunion concert of the locally famous and now scattered Ragged Edge featuring our own John Cardascia on hammer dulcimer.
You will find the performance and workshop schedules here.
This is a free festival, but do bring money to pay for camping and buy food, T-shirts, and raffle tickets.
