November 10 at 2:00pm until November 11 at 1:30am in CST.

On November 10 2012 International recording artists will converge on the northern suburbs of Chicago for the inaugural Chicago CBGF. In a world of mass produced, cookie cutter, disposable music and instruments the Cigar Box Guitar stands apart. From the simplest one string diddley bow to finely crafted highly detailed 6 string fretted cbg's each one is as unique as it's maker. The styles of music played on them ranges from Delta Blues to Primitive Rock to Jug Band to Gothic Blues and beyond. At this years CBG Fest you'll see some of the top acts in the cbg world and have the chance to buy your own cbg.
 
Over 10 hours of live music on 2 stages!
 
Great food and drink specials!

Featuring Performances by:
 
Purgatory Hill
Johnny Lowebow
Husky Burnette
Mojo Perry
Justin Johnson
