Dobroists back and forth across the Atlantic

We learn from Bluegrass Today that among the 100 resophonic guitar players at ResoSummit 2012 a week ago in Nashville, TN, were pickers from Denmark, Canada, Australia, Switzerland, and Ireland. Comments from anyone who was there are welcome.
ResoSummit's all-star teaching faculty includes the founder, Rob Ickes, who played in Ireland in September as a member of Blue Highway at the Johnny Keenan Banjo Festival (he is on the right in the photo, with Johnny Gleeson of Carlow).

Registration for this year's ResoSummit opened on 31 Jan. 2012 and was sold out within an hour and a quarter, so would-be attenders for next year are advised to get their names on a waiting list.
