This year's event features some of the heavy hitters in the cigar box guitar world, including Samantha Fish and the retro trio from Rotterdam, The Mourning Glories.
I have updated my gig calendar here with my own show details or you can check out the New Orleans Cigar Box Guitar official site for ticket links and more.
Other news: I'm sorry to announce the passing of Pat Johnson, slide guitarist and iconic craftsman of Voodoo Bone Guitar Slides. Pat and I worked together to develop a StubbySlide.com version of his brass slide and it became one of the most popular items in my store.
I hope to be interviewing his wife, Vickie for a proper memorial article to be posted on Guitar World's website in the next few weeks.
To those of you who purchased Voodoo Bone guitar slides, keep them save and cherish them like I do mine. Life, it seems, is even more fragile than guitar slides.
Stay primal. Keep making the world awesome. Go do something big this year.
