2013 HD Rendezvous

Spring Fling Hammer Dulcimer Rendezvous, April 26-28, 2013 featured Music Workshops with Karen AshbrookPaul Oorts and Mark Alan Wade, who travelled great distances to share their talents with us, along with our staff of Northwest HD players, Carolyn CrusoRick FogelCarl Thor, and Mick Doherty.  For SFR ’13 we were pleased to welcome Maestro Hossein Salehi.  Also featured were SFR stalwarts Rob Downie and Ted Sittser.

I’ve attached the schedule & workshops from 2013, below.

The Fling took place at Oral Hull Park in Sandy, Oregon.with on-site check-in starting at noon on Friday, April 26.  The Fling wrapped up at noon on Sunday, April 28.

The event featured workshops for hammer dulcimer players at all skill levels from beginning to advanced, as well as an instructor’s concert, jam sessions, an open “mic” concert — without microphone, y’see — a chance to buy recorded music, instructional books and musical items from our instructors’ tables of wares, and a raffle of items donated by participants.

Oral Hull Park features dorm rooms (2 twin beds per room), several discreet sound spaces for workshops and jams, a professional kitchen (and staff!) as well as a newly constructed shower facility.  On-site RV parking (no hook-ups) and camping (lots of good lawns, and on a clear day, a view of Mount Hood), as well as nearby hotels are further lodging options for registrants.

SFR ’14 (April 25-27, 2014) sold out, as well.  Look for our 2015 lineup, coming up, hopefully, by summer of 2014.
