Enjoyed the festival.
However, we have a great program for kids of all ages (8 -108) that we would have been willing to do for the past two years. We can't get the right person to listen or see what we have to offer. Who should we contact?

We can teach people to play Welsh tunes on an easy to play dulcimer. We do school programs in New York, Pennsylvania and Florida.
We are proud of our Welsh heritage and look forward to being a part of the festival in a more indepth way.

Hello Stacy,

Thank you so much for drawing our attention to the North American Festival of Wales this coming Sept. 3rd to the 6th. in Pittsburgh, PA.

I especially loved reading the names you provided as far as having Welsh ancestry. My grandmother's maiden name was Hughes so I just might fit in at this exciting event.

It sounds like it would not only be great entertainment it would also be a wonderful opportunity to educate ourselves about the Welsh community.

Wishing you a very successful event,
