What interests me is the meter, which is every bit as important.
This one is kinda odd: 8,8,11, doubled.
I just hope Rebecca doesn’t mind her name being rhymed with “will be there”!

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks Steve!

I don't think you will have a problem bringing worthy instruments. You could bring your guitars unfinished without a top, and they would still be worthy. I'm looking forward to seeing what you and Jeremy bring and catching up with the both of you.

Hello Everyone! As per the title change, the last piece of the puzzle, which I have been teasing while I have been working behind the scenes, is now in place.

The one and only Tony McManus will be at the event and will be headlining the Saturday night concert. In addition, he will be doing a workshop on Celtic styling music and techniques and we will be offering two forms of lessons, a group lesson and individual lessons throughout the weekend as you prefer. These spaces are limited so first come first served.

OK, so I feel I have done what I can to get you to come , 11 world class luthiers across the price spectrum, Gerry Humphrey with his top of the line acoustic custom built amps, Dustin Furlow and Karlijn Langendijk playing Friday night with Frog and Toad (Ben and Brad) followed by Tony McManus on Saturday night.

I feel like I need to do a virtual mic drop now! We have about 25 spots left, please reach out to me before these are filled up.

Tom

Wow Tom, just when I thought this B.I.G. couldn't get any better you go and add Tony McManus to the line up. There might still be time to see if Paul and Ringo are available, just sayin'.

Wow! Just wow! The lineup on both sides of the guitar was already mind blowing. And then you just took it above and beyond. Congratulations on an incredible show. Have an amazing time.

There is no more "Can you top this?" because it's the tops!

Congrats Tom on landing Tony for this years B.I.G. I had the pleasure to work with him at LaConner a few years back. World class talent, great guy and awesome onstage personality.

You really have outdone yourself.

I have to say, it is indeed a lot of work, but hopefully it will all be worth it. Need to get a few more folks signed up!
