Carmensan, I know you know Christie, Butch & Jenny, but just in case anyone else here is going to the Congress, here's what those three people Rick mentioned above, actually look like.
As well as being excellent musicians, they are all Movers & Shakers in the Dulcimer world. So as well as all being very friendly folks they are also good people to know, & if you don't already know them, if I were you, I'd make a point of introducing yourself.
Butch Ross & Christie Burns
P.S. Do you have a photo of yourself and Jutta Claar that you could share with us Carmensan?

I notice they have now posted a program for this year's Congress.
It looks absolutely fascinating, although I'm not really sure whether I would be totally inspired by all that wonderful music & amazing talent, or just so depressed that I only took up the H-D in my 50s, so can only ever hope to be, at best, a very average player!
I hope you get a chance to post some details of this wonderful event Carmensan, if only just to make the rest of us all green with envy!
