Bringing Science and Curiosity back into Culture (an all ages event): Luthier Renaissance: Guitars Since 1970’s
Harry Fleishman, Luthier
Although it is not a precise date, the seventies ushered in a sea change in the
world of guitar making. The level of innovation and quality of work grew to new
heights, and a generation of young luthiers created a worldwide renaissance in the design, building, and playing of the acoustic and electric guitars and basses. Interestingly, the North Bay was a cultural center for this evolution. Harry has been a musician, artist, luthier, and
designer of guitars and basses for both individual musicians and guitar manufacturers. He was the director of the American School of Lutherie, and the less grandiose Luthiers School International (formerly Intergalactic). He has lectured on topics of lutherie in Italy, Australia, China, and Texas. You can find him at Free Range Guitars on Main Street in Sebastopol.
Doors open at 7:00. Show starts at 7:30.
