Concert Window Highlight: Katie Moritz

Concert Window Highlight: Katie Moritz

by Steve Eulberg

At DulcimerCrossing.com, we love being able to present all kinds of dulcimer performances for our Members.

We finished last month with a concert by 2013 National Hammered Dulcimer Champion Katie Mortiz and her guitar side-kick Skip Siddick.

Here is the Highlight Video she chose and we are excited to share it with you.

Premium Members have access to Live Events like this every month.

Basic Members have access to these Live Events every quarter.

Want to join us, too?

As Katie demonstrates, this is a LOT of fun!

Theatricum Botanicum

Theatricum Botanicum

by Steve Eulberg

While on tour in southern California in August, DulcimerCrossing instructors, Erin Mae Lewis and Steve Eulberg arrived early for their gig, Peter Alsop’s Kids Koncerts (Dulcimer-Wellcimer) at the “magical treehouse” of Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum.

Erin took these photos as we prepared for the pre-school kids concert on Sunday morning.

As Erin relates in this highlight video from their recent Concert Window show, Steve was playing this new composition, inspired by the setting, during the sound check for his guitar.

She came to the stage from the second floor green room and joined in to complete the tune, which they named for the location that inspired it.

This Highlight Video will also be available on the Live Events page at DulcimerCrossing.com.

Enjoy!

Dulcimer Events Page

Dulcimer Events Page

by Steve Eulberg & Linda Ratcliff

Each of us loves to have a trusted and reliable location to learn of the things going on that are important in our universe.

For many years EverythingDulcimer.com was that place.

As that website moves into an historical position in the internet dulcimer world, we want to be certain that none of us loses access to the information about upcoming Dulcimer Events.

We have been hosting Live Events at DulcimerCrossing.com as a benefit for our Basic and Premium Subscribers.

We have added a Dulcimer Events Page to our website (see the 6th tab from the left at the top). Our vision is to provide as complete a list of dulcimer events as possible – including not just festivals, but also workshops and concerts by dulcimer artists.

ACCESSIBILITY:

You can sort this database and look over upcoming events according to the start date, type of event, name of event, location, city, and state. Just click on the column title to reorganize the information.

Please feel free to let us know about your upcoming event by using the Dulcimer Event Information Form. And always keep an eye on our Live Events Calendar, for upcoming concerts sponsored by Dulcimer Crossing.
