"Dulcimerica" Feature - "2 Weeks Of Magic"

Today's Dulcimerica episode features moments from the 8th Annual Florida Gulf Coast Dulcimer Retreat and 3rd Annual Castaway Music Cruise.

It truly was a magical time! Thanks to Guy & Sharrie George, Richard & Aly Ash and Jae Futch for all of the planning, hard work and fantastic energy! Thanks to the staff of the Homosassa Riverside Resort and crew of the Royal Caribbean Brilliance of the Seas for working with us so wonderfully. Thanks to our fabulous helpers, volunteers and 2nd camera folks for going above and beyond!

And very special thanks to everyone who joined us for the retreat or cruise or both! There were so many extraordinary moments that you shared with us, and this video features just a few of them, from workshops, jams and fun meals to cruise ship flash-mobs, shore excursions and lots of sweet music. THANK YOU! I hope you enjoy this fond look back at "2 Weeks Of Magic." ARRRRRRR! <3
