Chickenbone John & Ricky Cool (live) + Learn to Play Cigarbox Guitar Taster Session Sunday 12th December
Back by popular demand...
Chickenbone John
‘The Godfather of the Cigar Box Guitar’, has become a huge favourite at the festival in recent years, with highly successful workshop/concerts demonstrating how to make and play 3-string cigar box guitars. John, whose musical career began in a punk band, has been perfecting the art of creating guitars from cigar boxes, inspired by the thought that such great bluesmen as BB King and Lightnin’ Hopkins began with home-made instruments. In performance he is joined by local legend Ricky Cool, in reviving the authentic sounds of early blues.
