The Festival  for 2017

from Little Rock Arkansas is an accomplished musician who first started playing the flute at the age of 11, and now performs on both flute and mountain dulcimer.
As a flutist, she played with the Arkansas Symphony, and was a flute major in college with the intention of teaching music. After marriage and three children, her music was put on the back burner for about twenty years. And then she discovered the dulcimer!

After much practice and many competitions, she won the Southern Regional Dulcimer Championship in 1999 and was the first woman to win the National Mountain Dulcimer Championship in 2001. Since then, she has taught at venues across the country including Western Carolina University, Dulcimerville, Buckeye, Unicoi, Summer Solstice in California, Mountain View, Melodies & Musings, Kentucky Music Week, and many more.
