One weekend, two great festivals!
Thursday, April 28th – Sunday May 1st: MerleFest
On the campus of Wilkes Community College, Wilkesboro, NC
Friday, April 29th – Sunday May 1st: Cowboy Festival
On Gene Autry’s Melody Ranch in Santa Clarita, CA
This weekend brings the start of May and two excellent music festivals on opposite ends of the country. What do Doc Watson, Tony Rice, Bill Nershi and James Nash have in common? They all play Santa Cruz Guitars, and they are all playing this weekend at Merlefest in Wilkesboro, NC. We will have a booth there in the Expo tent, so if you’re attending this world famous festival, be sure to stop by to try out some Santa Cruz Guitars and place a bid on our donated Flamed Maple F Model that we donated to the Merlefest Silent Auction.
If you happen to be in the Los Angeles area this weekend, do yourself a favor and make the trip up to Santa Clarita to partake in the ultimate gathering of cowboy music, poetry and lore. The Cowboy Festival takes place on Gene Autry’s famed Melody Ranch, and is a whole weekend of tall tales, ten gallon hats and tumbling tumbleweeds. Don Edwards will be performing on his new 50th Anniversary Commemorative Signature Model, and Santa Cruz Guitar Company will have a booth set up on Main Street to show off his guitar and other Santa Cruz models great for western picking and campfire songs.
Hope to see some of you at either festival!
