Thank you for your interest in our workshops!
In honor of Bascom Lamar Lunsford’s focus on celebrating and preserving the region’s music and dance traditions, we are excited to host five workshops for festival goers to learn a little bit more from some of the finest musicians and dancers in the region.
They will be one hour each, and though there is no charge, space is limited. Feel free to sign up now by sending an email the Festival Director Hannah Furgiuele at email@example.com that includes your name, the workshop in which you are interested, and your phone number.
