RockyGrass 2014, Lyons, Colorado

A few pictures from my stay at RockyGrass Festival in Lyons, Colorado.

A photo gallery from MinierAcustica 2014 workshop in Urbino, Italy

Here are a few pictures from workshop at Corte de la Miniera, near Urbino, Italy. The teachers: Russ Barenberg – guitar (USA), Mike Compton – mandolin (USA), Jean-Marie Redon – banjo (France), Henrich Novak – Dobro (Slovakia).
The workshop was held las week of August, the overall atmosphere was great, food was excellent, people amazing and lots of great music.

My new instrument – Karel Zacal #40, Maple, model C11

I have a new instrument at home (yes, I own it) made ​​by a young Czech builder (and an excellent resonator guitar player) Karel Začal (pronounce Zatsal). (www.conerinstruments.cz, www.facebook.com / karelzacal)
Model C11, serial number # 40, material – maple in a elegant dark design. Beautiful, clear and velvety sound – typical of maple resoguitars, well balanced across whole fingerboard – indeed to such an instrument I have long been waiting for! Thank you Karel!

Where I’ll be teaching Dobro in 2014

Beside my Resoland Workshops here are some other ones where I’ll be teaching resonator guitar this year.
First one is at Musique Acoustique in Virton, Belgium next month (www.musiqueacoustique.org). Unfortunately for those who would be interested in my lessons there, the resonator  class is already full.
You might visit Norway this summer and enter Risor’s Bluegrass Workshop on July 7.-10.2014 (www.risorbluegrassfestival.no), or if that’s a little too far for you, there is another opportunity this fall – Bluegrass Camp close to Munich, Germany (www.bluegrasscamp.de) in October 10.-13.2014.
