Music Compound to Host Cigar Box Guitar Workshop

Arts & Culture

Families seeking fun and creative options for their students this summer will enjoy this opportunity: On Saturday, July 10, Music Compound and the Suncoast Blues Society are partnering to present a Cigar Box Guitar Workshop, led by noted local blues musician Steve Arvey. Ages 8-18 are invited to participate in the fun-filled morning, with each child/teen building their own cigar box guitar. The workshop takes place from 10 a.m.-noon at Music Compound's Cattlemen location (1751 Cattlemen Rd., Sarasota). Reclaimed woods and recycled materials are used to build the handcrafted cigar box guitars; the workshop includes all materials, a history lesson, and a jam session. The event is free – thanks to the sponsorship of the Suncoast Blues Society – but attendance is limited to the first 10 registrants.
