A group for those near to London, weather you live near or just feel near spiritually. Even if you've never been to the "Great Metrolops" but feel some sort of emotional connection. Hope it helps people down south to co-ordinate a bit.
Location: London and southern England

One of the things I thought we could do with this group is exchange information on sources of materials etc. I am a fairly recent convert to the world of CBGs so my experience is limited, but I'm…Continue

One Man Band festival in London next March. Hollowbelly we know, and Dollar Bill plays a bit of CBG too. Loads of good stuff and the mighty Bob Log as well.
Anyone from The Smoke off to Boxstock? I've just booked ticket, accommodation and train.
Hi Geoffrey! Sorry, I've been a bit distant for a while, work, builders in the house and what not. I didn't make it to Boxstock last weekend due to a minor flood at home (sorry John). I'd be happy to meet up, I'm right in the centre of town, near Moorgate. I'd be happy to have a look at your cbg, and try and give an opinion. I'm currently studying guitar building part time at CASS. I'm no expert, but might be able to help.
To be brutally honest, Cigar Box Nation isn't the force it used to be. I think it's suffering from competition from Facebook, and the fact that it's not what it was when Shane was at the helm. It seems to be a USA focussed commercial operation now, which is all well and good, but it doesn't appear to have the direction it used to. I've just run Boxstock and although I can't do a really accurate analysis of how many people came to it thru' this website, I'd guess literally a handful, maybe 5% max of the total attendance, which says a lot about the power and influence of CBN.
What happened to Leadfoot? He was to be deployed with the British military to a sandy location. It has been a couple of years or so since he was heard from here.
