February Meeting:  The February meeting of the Lone Star State Dulcimer Society will be The Winterfestival of Acoustic Music.  See information below or go to and click on winterfest to get all the times, schedules, cost, titles, etc.


After Winterfest Our new meeting location will be:  First Christian Church of Irving, located at 114 W. Grauwyler Road.  This is just south of Airport Freeway and just east of O’Connor Road.  The dates and times at  are shown as tentative because we may need to have some flexibility should a church activity conflict with our meeting.  But, we also have the flexibility to change the time should we decide to do any afternoon meetings as some have requested.  The schedule will be posted at and any changes to meeting details will be posted there as soon as they are known.  As always, all information about the next meeting will be listed in the newsletter for that month.
