Knotlenny's faceBOX page.



Singer/Songwriter; Knotlenny (or Kevin Sprague) was bitten by the cigar box guitar bug in 2004 when he bought a 3-string model on eBay from Bluesboy Jag. Since that time he's constructed (and performs with) a number of primitive instruments . . . .and lays claim to being the design originator of the license-plate resonator cbg.

Knotlenny organized the first Cigar Box Guitar fest in upstate NY, 'Fingerlakes Fest', which was held in Canandaigua, NY in 2008.

He is also one of the founding members of the Muckland Crooners.

Other (at least) marginally interesting facts about Knotlenny. He - -

  • has been a published editorial cartoonist - appearing in papers such as - USA Today
  • spent nearly 20 years selling propane and propane accessories, a la Hank Hill
  • once had The Big Top collapse on him, at a Circus performance.
  • is some kind of distant cousin to Bruce Springsteen . . .but never gets a Christmas card
