First Australian Mountain Dulcimer Retreat at Tasma House Daylesford

In 2020 two of the music events that Adrian Kosky and I had planned were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year we decided to plan one informal event which we hope will become an annual event at Tasma House Daylesford

As I hope we have all learned, nothing is certain except the need to be prepared for change and flexibility. So Adrian and I will be offering everything we planned to offer last year, minus the formalities of a workshop schedule, hiring instructors, or formal concerts. This year's event will be an organic, "kindred gathering," for dulcimer-hearts down under. (Thank you, Robert Force, for the inspiration!) The most formal thing about this year's planned mountain dulcimer event is a lovely poster designed by our friend, artist/musician Meghan Maike in Melbourne

Tasma House Daylesford is ready for the hosting of this event. As I have said over and over again, since arriving in Australia in 2009, Tasma House is ideal for residential-style leisure learning. Adrian Kosky and I have enjoyed hosting many retreats here at our guest house and look forward to this year's mountain dulcimer retreat as a first.

Mountain dulcimer enthusiasts can expect to share, music, meals, laughter, learning and leisure time, while in residence at the first Australian Mountain Dulcimer Retreat, 10th, 11th, & 12th of September, 2021.
