Default La Conner Guitar Festival (Washington State), May 12-14, 2017

Seems like there's no shortage of guitar / luthier shows this year. One of the newest ones is the La Conner Guitar Festival, taking place about an hour north of Seattle from May 12-14, 2017.

I love La Conner - it's one of the quintessential little waterfront towns in Washington State...tons of stores, good food and beer. A couple months back, I toured the facility where it's taking place (the Fretboard Journal is a sponsor and I wanted to check it out) and it looks really nice. It's about the size of Woodstock's venue.

There will be around 40 luthiers on hand, including John Walker, Steve Andersen, Meagan Wells, Beneteau, Galloup, Steve Grimes, Wyatt Wilkie, Steve Klein, Roy McAlister and other AGF favorites...I believe they've sold out of tables already. They're also throwing some evening concerts / workshops.

Updates can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/LaConnerGuitarFestival/

Hope to see some of you there. The idea for a Seattle-area guitar show has been kicking around for some time and I'm glad to see it finally happening. I'll be up there all three days. If anyone needs any travel/lodging tips, I'd be happy to help...

I'd like to attend, I've never been to one of these.
We'll see.

We are looking to relocate up near there. Put it on the calendar.
