The NCCBG Festival Board is excited to announce the 2nd Annual North Carolina Cigar Box Guitar Festival. The event will be held October 10, 2020, at the beautiful Grove Winery, 7360 Brooks Bridge Rd., Gibsonville, NC 27249
Many of you may be familiar with cigar box guitars, but if not, it is a unique handmade instrument that dates back to the civil war in the Carolinas. They were created by those who had a desire to make music from whatever resources available during that time in history. The NCCBG Festival joins the growing list of areas that now enjoy CBG events, such as Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Illinois, and many overseas locations.
Our event will be promoting the history of these truly American musical instruments through education, demonstrations and will feature national, regional and local and musicians who play them. This will also be a great family event with vendors, food and refreshments. Free until 5 then $15.
Thank you in advance for your help in spreading the word about this unique event and putting North Carolina on the map for such an event.
