ResoSummit | November 10-13, 2016

Total Dobro Overload by Design!

ResoSummit is: 3 days of workshops by a diverse, stellar faculty; 3 evening performances at the Station Inn plus a closing faculty performance; after-hours jams; luthier consultations; and more.
Our goal: To send you home with enough homework, ideas, and especially inspiration to make this a highly creative and productive time in your musical life.

If you are interested in attending a future ResoSummit and aren't already on our email list, sign up here, and check "ResoSummit" as one of your interest areas.
