Hill Guitar will be at SBAIC!

The Santa Barbara Acoustic Instrument Celebration is this Weekend!

The modern “guitar festival” in which the public could meet directly with a number of celebrated luthiers was created two decades ago by Charles Fox, Tom Ribbecke, and Todd Taggart in Healdsburg and brought to fruition by Chris Herrod and LMII. The Santa Barbara Acoustic Instrument Celebration is indebted to their vision and continues the tradition of presenting the state of the craft and the art of the music in an informal setting.

The Santa Barbara Acoustic Instrument Celebration is a unique opportunity to meet many contemporary masters of lutherie, and to see, play and purchase some of the finest handmade instruments directly from the builder. Many of these lutherie legends will be in attendance along with numerous contemporary icons who continue to set the standard and break new ground. Please join us for an unparalleled festival including fingerstyle, jazz, blues, classical, and slack key acoustic music all weekend at a relaxed California gallery and garden setting, in one of America’s premier destination towns.

Our table will be in the Luthier Hall at table J10!
Kenny will also be playing at the indoor music stage at 2:20pm on Friday
