Bret and Frisk, "...are looking forward to seeing your smiling faces at our shows! As we continue into our third decade of performing together, it is extremely heartwarming to have made so many special friends through our travels and performances. As we reflect over the past 25 years we realize how special you all are and that is what keeps us going! A special thanks to all of you who have supported us over the years. We are very blessed to have such special people in our lives!" Bret and Frisk met in Breckenridge, Colorado and have performed throughout the US over the years. If you have not seen a Bret and Frisk show, they pride themselves on having a classic acoustic show with over 450 memorized songs to chose from . . .no page flipping, drum machines, chord charts and other distractions. They play what the audience wants to hear.

 

Scholarships

We are committed to offering art workshops because we know learning is a life-long process. We recognize that even thought we try to keep the instruction, lodging and meal prices competitive, that the price may be beyond the means of some. With that in mind, Dillman's offers partial scholarships / honorariums to help off-set the cost of the workshop. The scholarships are awarded to students based on financial needs. These scholarships are set up and given to those that would not be able to attend a workshop if they are not given financial support. Proceeds of the art corner gift shop will be awarded as scholarships to the northern Wisconsin art workshops. Scholarships are available and applications are online.
