The 4th annual Handmade Music, a one day exhibit of locally handmade musical instruments. Emerson House, 420 N Main St Rockford.
See a variety of locally hand made instruments and meet the artisans who make them. Live music and demonstrations as the makers play their creations. Free for the public. Free for exhibitors.
This is organized by Jim Worland of Worland Guitars in Rockford. I will be there with just a handful on instruments, but there will be lots of others with all sorts of instruments -- some crude and simple, like mine and some with exquisite craftsmanship and musicianship.
If you are anywhere in shouting distance, be sure to come!
