THE KINGS ARMS
TUESDAY 24 OCTOBER
The origins of cigar box guitars are the origins of the Blues…
In America in the late 1800s, many young musicians would turn to building their own instruments using easily available materials. They created makeshift guitars using discarded cigar boxes, planks, broomsticks and wire to bring their music to life.
Run by local vet and musician Willie, this is your chance to join the cigar box guitar revolution.
Leave the workshop with a working, playable instrument – all you need to add is the Blues!
