New Workshop - New Instruments

New Workshop - New Instruments

I am delighted to be working in the magnificent space that is The Britannia Panopticon Music Hall, Trongate, Glasgow. (The oldest surviving Music Hall in the world}, and the place where the young Stan Laurel made his debut as a performer. - I am just settling in, and have, in production, an Appalacian Dulcimer, an Electric Washboard, and several Cigar Box Guitars. - Huge thanks to Judith, Stacy and all at 'The Pots' for giving me the chance to work in a studio space again.  I Love It !
