Default Artisan Guitar Show – April 3-5, 2020 in Harrisburg, PA: Who is Attending?

Who else will be attending the 4th annual Artisan Guitar Show next April?

http://artisanguitarshow.com/

I have been to all three prior shows and can and can attest that the show is worth attending if you are interested in meeting a wide variety of luthiers, auditioning luthier made guitars, attending educational seminars or concerts. It all takes place in a Best Western Hotel so aside from the formally scheduled activities, people have plenty of social time and playing of their personal instruments as well.

Going to try to go. Went the 1st time and really enjoyed it. Schedule got in the way the 2nd time. Looks like the show is getting even bigger. Be nice to meet a few folks from the forum in addition to all the luthiers, sellers of guitar accessories, and of course, seeing the goods. Thanks for the heads up.

Jeff

The “official” schedule will be posted on the show website on January 1st.

Here is what I can tell you so far:

Singer-songwriter Patty Larkin will present a songwriting clinic, master guitarist Alex de Grassi will teach, Richard Hoover from Santa Cruz Guitar Company will speak, and Trevor Gordon Hall will present a class for players.

https://www.pattylarkin.com/
http://www.degrassi.com/
https://santacruzguitar.com/
https://www.trevorgordonhall.com/

The master classes are included in the price of general admission with no additional fees to attend.

On Sunday, they have asked Sean McGowan to present an archtop guitar concert sampling. John Monteleone and Tom Ribbecke have committed instruments to be sampled and Howard Paul (Benedetto Guitars) will join Sean for a song to showcase a Benedetto.
