Getting Started With Twitter

Need Twitter help? We'll be using Twitter during the Key West Dulcimer Festival to connect with guests and inform them of lots of stuff. From schedule-changes and announcements, shuttle service and special offers to jam times and places, special activities and other elements of the festival, Twitter will be one way that folks can stay updated with the latest information.

This website wiki
features information on Twitter apps for mobile phones. If your phone can receive e-mail, then you can utilize Twitter and be part of the network in Key West.

Remember, once you sign up for Twitter, you'll need to start "following" us. When you're signed in (this is easiest to do from home, on your computer), just go here and then click on the "follow" button. It's as easy as that! Then, whenever you want to reach anyone from the festival, you precede your message with @KeyWestDulcimer and then type whatever you'd like to say!

Messages go out instantaneously and will be received via phone. Some apps are more customized than others, so your messages could show up as a text - or in a window as part of an application. Either way, if we suddenly find out that a jam is taking place at the Days Inn in ten minutes - you'll get a "tweet" letting you know so you don't miss a thing! If there has been a schedule change of any sort, you'll get the information without having to visit the information booth.

So, give it a try - we think you'll find it easy to use and very, very beneficial when it comes to sharing information!

If you have any questions, just "tweet!"

Great Times!

We had a BLAST at this year's Gathering and are already making plans for 2014!  Thanks to everyone who joined us - we hope you think back on these few days and smile at the memories.  Plan on joining us again next January!

2013 Key West Dulcimer Gathering - 1/24 - 1/27

The 2013 Key West Dulcimer Gathering will take place January 24th - 27th at Casa Cabanas (2510 Harris Ave.) in Key West, Florida!  The low-key nature (pun fully intended) of the 2012 event worked so well that we've decided to stick with that formula; whoever shows up, shows up and will be welcomed with music, fun, great food and the beauty of wintertime in the sub-tropics of the United States.

No registration fee is required and with the workshops on mountain dulcimer, Native American flute and ukulele (perhaps even guitar), you simply pay as you go.  Or nap on the deck.  Or go snorkeling - it's all your call.

The dynamic duo of Butch Ross and Bing Futch will be on staff and ready to help you learn as you have fun - or is that have fun as you learn?  Either way, it's going to be a good time as we enjoy lots of jamming, an honest-to-goodness Cuban cookout, some sightseeing and whatever else may come into play;  this is Key West after all.

The Key West Dulcimer Gathering is just around the corner and we're starting to get excited about spending four lovely days in the place that you see in the picture above.  (That's Smathers Beach, by the way, and we'll head over there at least once.)

There's no registration fee - merely point your GPS to 2510 Harris Ave in Key West and plan on showing up sometime on Thursday, January 24th.  Nothing is planned yet - that's completely up to those who arrive!  Butch Ross and myself will be on hand to lead jams, offer private lessons and see who's interested in what.  Once we have a consensus, we'll know what kinds of workshops to put together and when to offer them.

Now, if you don't have a place to stay yet, contact Sheri Cabanas at Conch Republic Concierge (305) 294-6019.

Other than that - prepare to have a blast in the tropics!  If you're joining us later than the 24th, text or call me at (407) 342-1447 and I'll let you know where we're at if …
