My name is Mark Noel and i have just begun my CBG journey. I am in the middle of my first fretless build and can't wait to finish so i can hone my slide chops on her. 

I see they have quite a few festivals organized in the US for CBG's and would love to see us Canucks get some going. Drop me a line on where you are and maybe we can get a group together in Ontario to jam and share trade secrets. Cheers!

That sounz real sweet!!!

Come to my show in Toronto Thursday night April 10th!

Well, here's some news that's close to Port Hope....

Shelter Valley Folk Festival has accepted my application to the Artists Village at the festival coming up on Labour Day Weekend. I'll be hawking my wares and possibly hosting a workshop as well. Shelter Valley isn't far from Port Hope, maybe 20 minutes or less.

Slow Lane Music recently completed our 26th build and is gonna keep me plenty busy through the summer building up inventory to sell at the festival.
