Raise your dulcimer playing to a new level with a memorable musical experience! The Crooked Road Dulcimer Festival combines a full slate of Appalachian dulcimer workshops, concerts, and jams with exceptional accommodations in a beautiful Blue Ridge setting.

This year’s team of instructors/performers—Ralph Lee Smith, Maddie MacNeil, Dave Haas, Ken Bloom, Jeff Sebens, Phyllis Gaskins, and Marsha Harris—is offering 42 workshops, something for every skill level and stylistic interest. Evenings are filled with performances, jams, and singing.

The CRDF is hosted by Ferrum’s Blue Ridge Institute & Museum—Virginia’s Official State Center for Blue Ridge Folklore and a Major Venue on the Crooked Road: Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail.
