Musique Acoustique Workshop in Virton, BE cancelled again

The sad news came from the organizers of the Musique Acoustique Workshop in Virton, BE.

Due to the ongoing pandemic situation, the workshop in Virginia will be closed again this year. Despite the fact that the organizers took measures that would contribute to the safety of the workshop participants, they did not change this in a situation where mass actions need to be revoked from government regulation. It is now the second year that fans of acoustic music will not meet their beloved music.

We can only hope that the situation will gradually improve and that the year of the workshop will finally take place. Till then, everybody be safe and healthy!

Musique Acoustique Workshop in Virton, BE 2021

Hello resophonic friends,

Last year, for objective reasons and partially my subjective ones, we took a long break with all the workshops associated with teaching the Dobro.

I hope that this period is at least more or less behind us and that all the activities, as we were used to, will start slowly.

The first act of the year is the Musique Acoustique Workshop in Virton, Belgium, which will take place in a different regime than in previous years, due to the persisting restrictions.
All necessary information can be found on their website: (available in French and English)

It is important for us that the teaching resophonic guitar (Dobro) is included in the first round, which will take place on April 3-6, 2021.
The maximum number of students in a class is 6, so capacity is limited.

Registration for the workshop started on January 1 and you can register at

If you are interested in the workshop, register, if you want to know more about how the workshop will take place, do not hesitate to contact the organizers.

Let us all keep our fingers crossed that the situation with the pandemic will stabilize so much that the workshop will be able to run smoothly and that we will all finally meet our beloved tools.
with our favorite music.


Musique Acoustique fundraising

I have to say, I feel blessed to be a part of the Musique Acoustique family. What a generous act to organize fundraising for lectors-musicians, who lost the opportunities to perform their occupation during this corona crisis. Along with the students of the workshop, they gathered the money in fundraising and divided it among the teachers. This is not something that might be taken for granted and it makes me speechless. I am deeply touched by this act of humanity. What a pity we couldn’t celebrate together the 35th anniversary of the MA Workshop together this year and I hope we’ll do it in good health next year.
Stay safe and healthy everybody, looking forward to seeing you soon!
