There are a couple of completely free Cigar Box Guitar events taking place over the next couple of months that are really worth a look.

Firstly there is is the second Elstead Barrelhouse Beer & CBG Festival on the 23rd of August. Last year's event was a lot of fun with plenty of beer and CBG mayhem.

This year promises to be even more memorable with 12 hours of live music from a staggering line up of cigar box guitar twanging hoodlums - along with plenty more beer. And there is even the opportunity to make your own cigar box guitar, guided by the legend who goes by the name of Chickenbone John.

Then in September there is the 3rd Cambridge Cigar Box Guitar festival at the friendly and welcoming Earl of Beaconsfield public house on Mill Road in Cambridge. Organised by our very own Col of StumbleCol fame this one promises to be as memorable as the last. It all kicks off at 2pm on the 20th of September and promises to be a day of diverse musical delights from an exciting line up of cigar box guitar toting nutters.
