The second annual Pennsylvania Cigar Box Guitar Festival is this Saturday, August 27 from 10am-5pm in downtown York, PA. The fest will host 14 acts on two stages plus demonstrations, instrument vendors and more. Headlining acts include Purgatory Hill, Shane Speal (from Cigar Box Nation) and psych-folk legends, Stone Breath. YouTube favorite and NY street musician, Keni Lee Burgess will give a free playing seminar as well.
The event takes place on the grounds of The York Emporium used store and coincides with YorkFest, a huge fine arts/crafts event. This is a free festival and perfect for the whole family. Attendees will be able to listen to the music, shop for unique instruments and still have time to explore YorkFest just two blocks away.
The festival is a great place for makers in the Mid Atlantic States (less than a 4 hour drive from NYC, Pittsburgh, Wash DC, Baltimore and Philadelphia).
There is a special Friday night jam session on the 26th for instrument makers and players starting at 6pm. The jam is $20 and includes pizza and beer. In addition, there will be cigar box guitar concerts in local pubs throughout the weekend.
