This is No.55. Got some Sweet tins from Home Bargains . They are just the right size and seem to work well

That is a shitload of value for fourteen quid, looking forward to it.

Boxstock - the UK Cigar Box Guitar Festival.

10th Feb, The Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton

During the daytime there's something for everyone...you can learn the finer points of making a cigar box guitar, learn the basics of playing with Hollowbelly, hone your slide technique technique with ChickenboneJohn, play a few tunes in the open mic. sessions..or just mooch round the stalls and have a drink or two. We'll also have BAFTA nominated film director Virginia Heath filming the event. Hollowbelly will be playing live during the afternoon, and I'm very pleased to announce that I will be joined by the amazing harmonica player Dave Smith during my evening spot.

Chickenbone John

A possible contender is the Retune charity; they attended Bostock last year as a seller:

Boxstock - we will have a film crew at the event, and the film makers are interested in any Scottish cigar box makers. I believe the director is Scots (BAFTA nominated!) and they are partly funded as a Scottish project). If you would be willing to take part, please let me know, together with your contact details.
