30 Mar 2019 to 31 Mar 2019 Once Only Event
The Cigar Box Guitar revolution has been gathering momentum with an increase in cigar box guitar builders and performers. The current revival can be attributed to many musicians’ desire for a more primal sound. Blues guitarists, in particular, have picked up the cigar box guitar in an attempt to play Delta Blues in its purest form.
Festival Director Steve Plater, is a multi award winning player of stringed instruments, has been building, perfecting, and playing Cigar Box Guitars for two decades or so with many of his instruments proudly owned and played by Cigar Box Guitar lovers.
The festival will have on board, Cigar Box Guitar builders Stalls and a workshop hosted by Steve Plater. There will also be two open mic sessions.
