Have you ever fancied building your own guitar? Don't know where to start? Well this is the event for you! Chickenbone John is a guitar builder, specialising in building three-string guitars out of cigar boxes, as played by the likes of Brooks Williams. This is a one-day course in which you can build your own guitar, and here are the details:
10am arrival for a 10.30am start
Chickenbone John will teach and assist you in building your own 3-string cigar box guitar to take away at the end of the day
All materials, tools and tuition included - just bring yourself and your enthusiasm!
Lunch included, provided by The Coven
Scheduled to finish around 3.30pm, then
4pm: 1-hour workshop on how to play slide and the cigar box guitar from...wait for it...Brooks Williams!
5pm finish.

Brooks is also doing a concert for us in the evening at the same venue and we'll be offering half-price tickets for his evening concert to those attending the workshop (£7 instead of £14). Extra tickets will need to be at full price. Chickenbone John is doing support on the night, but we're happy for anyone who wants to get up and do a number with their new guitar, as is John!
