Burnsville has been my home for more than 12 years. I will be teaching a workshop at the festival ("Making Your Guitar Swing"), and a few of my archtops will be on display. I will also be a volunteer for the event. Homeplace has good brews, and the show is in the upstairs of the same building. Hope to see you there!
