Luthier's Craft: Instrument Making Traditions of the Blue Ridge

Luthier Wayne Henderson in his workshop in Mouth of Wilson, VABristol, VA (November 3, 2017) — Luthiers—skilled makers of stringed musical instruments—are both keepers of tradition and innovators. They carry on the old ways of working wood and string to create beautiful and functional instruments, while also bringing new creativity and technology to the fore in their pieces. The Luthier's Craft: Instrument Making Traditions of the Blue Ridge is a new special exhibit at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum that explores and documents the traditional arts of fiddle, guitar, banjo, and dulcimer making in Southern Appalachia and the Blue Ridge Mountains. The special exhibit is on display now through March 4, 2018.
