Cigar-Box Guitar Workshop

Build your own Cigar-box Guitar! Workshop with Matt Downs includes all supplies, tools and a 1-hour lesson on how to play. This year's workshop features a flying bridge design, meaning you have the option to customize your own cigar-box into a guitar! Bring any cigar-box or small cigar-box-style box. Don't have a cigar-box? Don't worry, we can also provide you with a kit from scratch. Workshop capacity is 20, so don't delay in registering!

Workshop participants will leave with their very own Cigar-box Guitar to take home, and receive a $5 discount price for our evening concert, featuring Matt Downs and Muddy Boots & The Porch Pounders: a pre-Halloween roots and blues extravaganza, showcasing the instruments built today!

Presented by the Western Folklife Center, these programs are funded in part by the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

$75 ($65 chldren under 12) Advance registration required. Register with Katie Aiken at kaiken@westernfolklife.org or 775-738-7508x223
