We are planning a meeting to talk about starting a Club for building and playing CBGs.  Our initial focus will be on slide 3 or 4 string guitars making some Blues music.  We will meet at:

Southern Piedmont Woodturners shop, Clearwater Artist Studios, 223 Crowell Dr NW, Concord, NC, 28025 on July 30, 2016 from 10:00am to 3:00pm.

Let's see what we can do about building CBGs and making some music.
