I'm making these announcements a touch on the late side, but better late than never! I will be attending two shows in the coming two months. The first is the Northwest Handmade Musical Instrument Exhibit. Some people simply refer to it as the Marylhurst Show since it is at the Marylhurst University near Portland, OR. This is their 43rd exhibit, and it's right around the corner! Mark your calendar for the weekend of the 28th and 29th of April. For more information, you can go directly to the website here, www.nwmusicalinstrumentshow.org
The second announcement is the return to the La Conner Guitar Festival for my second year! This show was absolutely amazing last year, and it's just going to be even better this year! Some of the biggest names in the luthier world today will be there, and I get to help them carry their gear and get them all coffee! Ha, kidding. I'll be showing off several of my new builds there, and I'm very excited! This show is the weekend of the 11, 12, and 13 of May. For further information, directions, booking, etc., you can visit the website directly here, www.laconnerguitarfestival.com
To add further excitement to the La Conner Show, the staff over at Fretboard Journal decided to do a neat series of their online "Bench Press" featuring several of the attending builders this year. I somehow make the cut! To see the story on myself, and builder Dion James, of Dion Guitars, you can go here, Fretboard Journal. So, lots going on, just how I like it!! Thanks, and I sincerely hope to see you there!
