 No booth at the San Rafael Vintage Show August 15-16

Because the San Rafael Vintage Guitar Show has been scheduled so far into the string bass season this year, I will not be exhibiting  this time. It was much easier to exhibit during a mid-July time. Look for a large and complete booth at the January show!


 Walker Creek Music Camp   October 8-11

I will be supporting the Walker Creek Music Camp again this fall by acting as a teaching assistant for the bass class and teaching a couple of bass workshops myself. This camp offers fun and interactive playing of guitars, banjos, fiddles, resophonic guitars, dancing, etc. It is a four day island of fun and interactive musical sanity in our busy work day world. I will have an able friend assisting in the shop during my absence.
