Dulcimer Day, square dance scheduled at Folk School

July 20th, 2012 by Staff Report in Chattnow Music

Chattanooga Folk School has two events scheduled at its new digs this weekend. The center recently relocated to a larger space at 1800 Rossville Ave. on the Southside.

Today is Dulcimer Day, featuring a series of workshops at 5 p.m., a potluck at 6:30 p.m., a concert by guest artist Neal Hellman at 7:30 p.m. and a jam session with all of the workshop presenters following Hellman's performance.

Workshops are $15, with the exception of an introductory session for children, which is free.

Hellman is a nationally acclaimed performer and teacher of mountain dulcimer. His latest recording is "Emma's Waltz," which has been praised for its "flawless musicianship."

Sunday brings a Square Dance and Music Party, featuring caller T-Claw and his band Fiddle Pie. The evening also will include performances by Heather Luttrell, Emily Kate Boyd and JoyScout. Admission is $7.
