Selling CBG's at the Shelter Valley Folk Festival this weekend!!!

This particular festival features an Artists Village with a juried selection process. Once you are approved, you are given a 10x10 pop-up booth and free access for yourself and an assistant. In return they simply ask for a donation for their silent auction - I donated a custom built license plate resonator guitar.

BTW, those new "Snake Oil"  pickups that CBGitty is selling... They are awesome.

I put some pics of a few that are going with me online at http://www.facebook.com/Slowlanemusic

Forgot to mention... Shelter Valley is about an hour or so east of Toronto between Grafton and Brighton.

Ahhh if i would of known earlier i definatelly would of checked that out..im just in Ottawa..and i really have a passion for making..playing and producing music from cbg,s just finished my 75 th build a nice old 120 yr old manzanilla box for myself..darn:) 

FYI: Slow Lane Music will be back at the Shelter Valley Folk Festival this coming labour Day Weekend. 

This year they have a vision to make the artists village a more collaborative environment, so I will be taking along a few playable unfinished instruments to allow some of the visual artists to contribute to... It looks like it will be a pretty fun time!
