That's right, for the first time I will be exhibiting at the most important music trade event in the world, the NAMM show in Anaheim, California. I'll be there with 4 of my latest guitars (including a brand new headless archtop) as part of the Boutique Guitar Showcase. Sunny SoCal, here I come!
Coming this June 16th (that's Fathers' Day) is the second annual Ottawa Guitar Show. I'll be there showing some of my latest instruments, along with 13 other fabulously talented and fun luthiers. There will be live musical performances all afternoon, plenty of electric and acoustic guitars, and even some ukuleles!

I really hope to see you all there...

Thanks to everyone who came out to the show. I had a blast! I met lots of terrific guitar players, heard some fine live music, and played a bunch of fabulous guitars by local luthiers. Hopefully we'll do it again next year!
I'll be here all day this sunday, June 17th. Click on the poster to go to the event website. It's a free event for anyone who loves guitars, music, or just fine craftsmanship. Hope to see you there!

Thanks everyone who came to the show! It was a roaring success. I am overwhelmed with the amount and depth of interest we received from our musical community here in Ottawa. The guitars were amazing works of art, and the musicial performances were really terrific.
We'll do it again next year for sure. Stay tuned for details!
Once again I will be demonstrating my craft at Upper Canada Village on Thanksgiving weekend. From October 7th to 9th, I'll have a workbench set up in the Family Activities Centre, a lovely old timber building on the shore of the St. Lawrence. There will be some other amazing exhibitors around too, including traditional boadbuilders, wood turners, and steam-powered sawmill machinery. It's just about the perfect way to spend an early fall day. I hope to see you there!
