Woodland Hills, Calif. — The California Traditional Music Society presents their 25th Annual Summer Solstice Folk Music, Dance & Storytelling Festival on June 22-24, 2007 at the Warner Center Marriott, 21850 Oxnard St.

The CTMS Summer Solstice Festival is unlike most other folk music gatherings. In addition to concerts, jam sessions, and story swaps, the CTMS Festival is a "teaching festival". Musicians, dancers, singers and storytellers from all over the world come to share their knowledge and experience. You will find classes on everything from playing fiddle to vocal warm-ups to contra-dancing and more.

Included in the weekend festivities is a wide variety of mandolin performances and workshops presented by the following artists:

- Michael Lampert (blues)
- Frank Javorsek (mandolin boot camp)
- Steve Parker (fiddle tunes, ragtime)
- Marla Fibish (Irish)
- Dave Firestine (old-time)
- Patrick Sauber (bluegrass)
