Red Wing, MN (April 8, 2015) - This spring, students in the guitar and violin labs at Minnesota State College - Southeast Technical in Red Wing are focused intently on their work as they build flattop, archtop and electric guitars, mandolins, ukuleles and at least one hurdy gurdy.
Though as of early April these instruments are still in various stage of assembly, most of them will be ready to play at this year's annual Student Guitar Show on May 12. Almost 80 extraordinary new hand-crafted custom instruments will be on display. The instruments will be played for the first time on stage by professional Twin Cities musicians, including Bill Cagley, Sarah Cagley, Mike Cramer, and Phil Heywood.
Guitar Raffle: Instructor David Vincent and other faculty members have contributed to the construction of a beautiful handmade steel string guitar which will be raffled off at the Guitar Show. Raffle tickets are $5.00; proceeds benefit the Roger Benedict Memorial Scholarship Fund, supporting Southeast Technical students in the string instrument repair and building programs.
