My experiences at the AMIS (American Musical Instrument Society) Meetings (Conference)

Disclaimer: Though I am a dues-paying member of AMIS (and on the Board of Governors beginning in 2018), these articles are not an "official" or otherwise sanctioned AMIS report. They reflect my own experiences, tastes and interests and are intended for my harp guitar/plucked stringed instrument readership, along with family & friends (as there is much of our other vacation adventures as well). Enjoy! Gregg Miner
