Learn new tunes. Play well known tunes, Slow or fast. This event was held at different locations in the past. It has now a home at the Folklife Center. It is a great venue, and they have been gracious enough to host the Wartz event. Rob Lackey was a key organizer for this event, along with Jim Fawcett and Kevin Messnger. The first Wartz was held in 2012, and has been held once or twice a year every year since, except for the Covid break. Rob was always very active on this website. He, unfortunately, passed away in December. We lost Rob, let's not lose this gathering. Rob would've wanted this.
