CBG Minded Michigan'ders Monthly Meeting at Red Sky Stage

February 9, 2019 from 1pm to 5pm
Our monthly gathering of friends, who build & play hand built musical (usually stringed) instruments. We can show you how to go about building your own, too. This event is open & free to everyone and is family friendly. I've had people tell me they can't play, but when we show you how really easy it really is, that all can change.   Store bought guitars don't have the sound you're looking for? Stop by & hear just what a hand built one could give ya. See ya there.See More
