KWDF On YouTube

The Key West Dulcimer Fest is now represented on YouTube!

We'll be sharing video from all 15 instructors/performers along with videos from Key West - a perfect companion to our blog/site here! In fact, Jae and I will be in the Keys for ten days beginning this Friday, so we'll have lots of new info from the trip.

Be sure to check KWDF out on Twitter as well, as we'll be utilizing the micro-blogging service for updates and details once we're all on the island in January of 2010. Give yourself plenty of time to get used to this popular social media application!
