Karen Ashbrook & Paul Oorts (Special Event)

  • 18 Aug 2017
  • 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
  • Lyceum of Alexandria, Alexandria, VA
To fans of the hammered dulcimer, Karen Ashbrook is a rock star, and she literally wrote the book on it: Playing the Hammered Dulcimer in the Irish Tradition. She also plays the wooden flute and pennywhistle, and has performed as a solo artist; with Ceoltoiri, Cabaret Sauvignon, and Pavilion 3; and in hospice settings as a Certified Music Practitioner to comfort the sick and dying. Her husband and musical partner Paul Oorts joins her on harp guitar, cittern, mandolin, and musette accordion, often with French music from his native Belgium. He has taught at Pinewoods, Augusta Heritage Center, the Swannanoa Gathering, and other camps and festivals around the United States and in Belgium. $15 suggested donation,
