Instrument Makers’ Show
Well… I didn’t get much done this year… but I did manage to get one new fiddle built and dragged a bunch of my previous work to the show.
I saw a few old friends there, and met a lot of new folks.
Here are some photos…maybe you’ll see people you know:
John Hill with his work
Lynn Berg with his Hardanger fiddles
Scott Ackley with his guitars
John Greven with his guitars
Sharon Thormahlen with a Thormahlen Harp
Ken Altman, with his violin, viola, cello and bass bows
Jeff Manthos with his work (Recognize the master maker visiting with him?)
Jon Franke with his table
Wes Peabody, his lovely wife, and his guitars
Mark Moreland at his table
My table…(my wife hid when she saw the camera coming… ) 🙂
Left side of the room, facing the entry…only the makers present, so far.
Right side of the room, from the same vantage point. Notice the guy with his thumbs in his ears? A friend of mine, Ken Pollard, and his wife Monica, who is hiding her face. He is a great fiddler and a great maker.
Here he is close-up. 🙂
And, here’s the room right up the center:
It was a good show all around. there were about 80+ makers, and probably in excess of 500 visitors.
