Last weekend we went up to San Rafael and set up shop at the California World Guitar Show.
It is inspiring to be in a room filled with guitars and I especially like the crazy colored ones, or ones made of beautiful woods. I asked one vendor if I could pose a strap with one of his guitars because it just kept grabbing my eye as I passed it. They go well together, don't you think?
On February 1st, a show will open here in Santa Cruz at the R. Blitzer Gallery featuring guitars which are locally made. The purpose behind the exhibition is to showcase the fine work of our local community of luthiers (builders of stringed instruments). I've been invited to participate in the opening reception, which will be on Saturday, February 1st. You can visit the event website for more information. I'll also be on hand at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History on Friday, February 7th with some of the luthiers and local musicians. There will be a concert in which 12 instruments made locally will be demonstrated by fine players. This ought to be grand. And it's all free. Read more about it here.
