Interest in Mountain Dulcimers has continued to grow,  and today, there are dulcimer clubs that have sprung up all over the country. Many of them host weekend music festivals, and even some week- long "dulcimer camps". Over the past 15 years or so, I have been traveling around to these various festivals, teaching workshops, and doing some concerts. It's a way for me to give something back to the music and the dulcimer community that has brought me so much joy.  I especially enjoy meeting new friends and sharing music together.
