Wintergrass concludes today.  Four days in the Spruce Room (Instrument Makers) where the Seattle Luthier’s Group set up a display flanked by mandolin makers, banjo makers, violin and bow makers.

We seemed to have crashed the bluegrass party as most of our guitars were decidedly not within the paradigm of bluegrass appropriate (i.e., dreadnoughts).  Regardless, we did get a lot of interested pickers.  Our little bet amongst ourselves has not yet been resolved:  “First sale buys the beers”.
