Being a curmudgeon

Posted on June 23, 2013 at 5:28pm 13 Comments

I know that cigar boxes mean that generally, anyone with one is going to play 'the blues'. But everyone just ends up turning out the same thing to a better or worse degree. I'm not knocking people who want to learn and play and get enjoyment out of music, but, these instruments are much more capable and far more adaptable to so much more than the same three chord turnaround.

I know im a grumpy git, just wanted to get that off my chest.

More inane abuse and a gig....

So, Ive played a few more gigs with the cigar box and the 'hilarious' comments still get wheeled out. ' Where did you get that ?, Is it real ? ' Then you play it and the clowns with the big voices shut up...ah well, goes with the territory.

If your in the Studley area on the 15th of this month, check out the Royal Oak pub. We are having a Cigar Box evening, including Chickenbone and a ' special guest '.

More details to follow.

Hello! My name is Kevin M. Kraft, founder of the annual Kansas City Cigar Box Guitar Festival. This year's event will take place on August 26th, and once again I am accepting cigar box guitars and cigar box guitar-related donation, which will be raffled off during the festival, the proceeds to benefit Kansas City's Blues in the Schools program. If you have a guitar, accessory, CD, DVD--anything related to cigar box guitars that you would like to donate, please contact me at the Cigar Box Nation or email me at kevinmkraft@juno.com  to learn where to send it.

 

Thanks for you time and consideration.

 

- Kevin
