We’re very excited to announce a free Cigar Box Guitar workshop with the great Scotty “Blind Dawg Willie” Shipps on Saturday, June 28 at 3:00 p.m. Scotty will discuss the history and building techniques of this great instrument that offers easy playability for all ages, works beautifully for slide playing and is just plain fun. He’ll also perform several songs on his handcrafted cigar box guitars so you can see just how it’s done, and share insights from Kansas City’s annual Cigar Box Guitar Festival. If we’re lucky, there could be a few box giveaways too, so you can try your hand at making one at home. Check out Blind Dawg Willie playing one of his cigar box guitars here.
