Woodford Folk Festival Wrap Up

The week we spent at Woodford Folk Festival was amazing from the music to the weather to the street theatre that passed us by and the final night's fire

event. I can still feel the heat from the pirate ship being set alight even though I was on top of a hill far away. If I try really hard, I can also hear the beautiful rendition of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah being sung from the stage out through the crowd and into the bush beyond.

The festival and nature live side by side

Thanks to all those who came into the stall and jammed with us on a cigar box guitar.  Check out my Facebook page in the next couple of days for some footage of these jam sessions.

Cigar box guitar lessons online

An old friend and seasoned guitar player, Patrick Curley, has recently launched an exciting new resource for the Cigar Box Guitar community. A high school music teacher,

he has developed a course of study for the playing of our unique instrument that is one of a kind. He takes you step-by-step through the development of foundation skills in fingerpicking and the use of the slide. He covers the blues in some detail, as well as presenting a stack of other songs for you to learn.
Patrick is a highly skilled teacher, many of you may have met him at one of our festival stalls, and we are

very excited to be a part of the launch of his site. Check out http://www.learncigarboxguitar.com/ for yourself and while you're there have a look at the competition to win a McTrustry Cigar Box Guitar.
