Mount Dora, FL Festival Update

Mount Dora, FL Festival Update

From Sheryl Chapman:

At the 2019 Central Florida Dulcimer and Autoharp Festival, we, along with many of you, learned that Ruth Harnden and Carolee Stewart would not be continuing their 14-year tradition of producing this festival.  Many of us look forward to this wonderful event each year, so we asked Ruth and Carollee whether we might continue it.  With their consent and at their request, we have given the festival a new name–the Florida Acoustic Winter Gathering.  We have met with the representative of the First Baptist Church in Mount Dora and have reserved the church for Friday and Saturday, 7-8 February 2020!   SO, SAVE THOSE DATES on your calendar!  Ruth has donated the scholarship fund money and other festival materials to our endeavor.  We are hard at work on a website and Facebook pages (coming soon!), and we’ll keep you updated on our progress and introduce you to the festival team through those media soon!

Right now we need a new festival logo to be used on t-shirts, bags, and other festival material.  So the attached flyer is the announcement for our logo contest!   The prize is one free festival registration, so put your creative hats on and send us your entry by 1 June1!  You can e-mail your entry to:  sherylchapman123@gmail.comor snail mail it to 111 Shirley Avenue, Sanford, FL  32771.   Here’s the announcement.  Please feel free to distribute this to everyone in your dulcimer world!

Passing Of A Dulcimer Player

Maureen Sellers asked me to inform you of the following:

Janey Robertson, a member of the Louisville Dulcimer Society, passed away after a short illness on April 13th. Janey was well-known in the region for her banjo and dulcimer playing, singing, and was master of many other instruments.

Those attending the Ohio Valley Gathering and Kentucky Music Weekend among other festivals may have made music with Janey.

Rest In Pace, Janey.
