We're not sure what the coming year will bring, but we hope there will be joyous celebration of playing together in person once again! If not, then at least (necessity being the mother of invention) enterprising people have made great leaps in technology, letting us come virtually together to play the music we love.
For over forty years, we've been holding workshops and providing early music fun and learning for amateurs and aficionados alike! The Fall Toot is normally held at Lakeview Methodist Conference Center near Palestine, Texas.
