Nearly 80 brand new,handcrafted guitars will be in the spotlight next week as Minnesota State College-Southeast Technical hosts its free annual Student Guitar Show.The instruments are on display 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday May 12 at the Red Wing campus.

"Students in the guitar and violin labs have been focused intently on their work as they build flattop, archtop and electric guitars, mandolins, ukuleles and at least one hurdy gurdy," said communication director Katryn Conlin.

The guitar show includes concerts on two stages, as the instruments will be played live for the first time by professional Twin Cities musicians, including Bill Cagley, Sarah Cagley, Mike Cramer and Phil Heywood.

"The students are brimming with satisfaction," instructor Brian Boedigheimer said. "It's a celebration of the great work they have been doing all year. All the struggle and challenges are behind them, and the guitar show is their reward."
