Hi Cigar Box Friends,
I'm in the process of planning an exhibition of Homemade Musical Instruments. Washtub bass, Washboard, Singing Saw and of course, Cigar Box Instruments.
I'm very interested to hear from anyone that is knowledgeable about the History of these instruments. I would also be incredibly appreciative of any photographs (in high resolution) or old film footage that you may have to share.
Further, if you just happen to live in or close to the Netherlands, are a builder and/or performer of such instruments and are interested in participating in this show i would be very happy to hear from you. Send me a message along with some images or video of your work.
Looking forward to your replies!
Thank you,
Shelley.

Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to drop a line about the HomeMade Musical Instrument show i was planning.
Unfortunately or Fortunately the enthousiasm for this show was so great that
it outgrew my original intentions. I was forced to put it aside for awhile since
other projects (that are already in progress) made it impossible for me to give the homemade instrument show
the attention it deserved. I have however lost none of my enthousiasm for such a show and hope at a later
date to make it a reality. I thank everyone for their photo submissions and invaluable information and
hope eventually to be able to put this to very good use!
Greetings & Happy Summer Wishes to Everyone!
Shelley.
