Oftentimes it's easier to build anew than to repair the old. But when a friend gave me the spinning speaker out of an old console organ (broken, of course), I knew I had to save it. With some old parts and some new, I have turned it into a totally unique guitarists' combo amp. Click on the pic to read more...
That's right, it's almost time for the Ottawa Guitar Show that I've organised for the past three years. This edition takes place in a new venue: the amazing Glebe Community Centre, a spectacular heritage building in one of Ottawa's lovliest neighbourhoods. I should know- I grew up there, and went to summer camps, after-school programs and other activities at the G.C.C.
There will be plenty of space for our greatly expanded roster of exhibitors too; over 33 luthiers from as far away as Toronto, Montreal, and northern New York will be there showing their work. There will be concerts featuring these amazing instruments running all day too. If you love guitars, or even just appreciate fine craftsmanship, you won't want to miss it. See you on june 29th!
The Ottawa Guitar Show was a terrific success! Thank you to all the amazing luthiers who came to display their work, as well as to the volunteers who helped make the show happen. I sure hope to do this again next year!
