The Raintree Music Heritage Festival is coming up soon:  May 11,12 in historic 
Spiceland, IN. Classes offered on all acoustic instruments. Some instructor 
names you might recognize:  Guy and Sharrie George,  Ted Yoder,  Les 
Gustafson-Zook,  Myra Dworski,  Tull Glazener,  Ann Marie Krause and several 
more.  We are requesting advance registration so we can limit class size, if 
need be, and so we can put classes in rooms of appropriate sizes.   See details 
at raintreemusicheritagefestival.weebly.com  where you can also print a 
registration form!  Please come and join us!
