How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?

old time Blues

I play old time blues and originals in the same vein in my solo configuration as well as a five piece blues band with Hammond B3, bass, drums, vocals.

I've been making and selling cbg's since 2004, now approaching 4000 sold. I also make cb amps, ukes, banjos and my Boogie Board Foot Stomper bass drum.

We play traditional 1950's blues: John Lee Hooker, T Bone Walker, Jimmy Reed, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf etc. I'm excited to be selected for IBC for the third time representing the Arkansas River Blues Society.

Hope to see you there!

Hello! My name is Kevin M. Kraft, founder of the annual Kansas City Cigar Box Guitar Festival. This year's event will take place on August 26th, and once again I am accepting cigar box guitars and cigar box guitar-related donation, which will be raffled off during the festival, the proceeds to benefit Kansas City's Blues in the Schools program. If you have a guitar, accessory, CD, DVD--anything related to cigar box guitars that you would like to donate, please contact me at the Cigar Box Nation or email me at  to learn where to send it.


Thanks for you time and consideration.


- Kevin

I have started a CBN group entitled, "How to Play CBG" It is my hope and intention to encourage the "Wealth of Talent" here on the Nation to share their knowledge and skill to further the CBG movement. Please consider contributing an instructional "video" link to this group. If you are a viewer seeking instruction, please feel free to write. If you have any suggestions or know other players who you think may want to post instructional "video" links, please contact me. Thank you for your interest and support, Keni Lee
