Dirt Pie Cigar Box Guitars


    How cool – Rob Gray @dirtpieguitar is heading to P&P 22 ~ our 6th event, hosted this year at Whirlow Hall Farm. We’ll let Rob introduce himself and explain what he does ?

    ‘Dirt Pie Cigar Box Guitars’, are real three stringed instruments made from old cigar boxes. They are often used to play ‘Blues’ but are great for any kind of music. They are reasonably easy to play, lots of fun and very cool. Each guitar is a unique hand crafted instrument made by me, Rob Gray, in my workshop in the Ribble Valley. All the cigar boxes I use are at least eighty years old and must have just the right amount of patina. Most of the other components are either recycled or from a sustainable source. Each guitar comes in a ‘gunny sack’, a bag made out of a reclaimed coffee sack from our local coffee roasters. Dirt Pie Guitars is really looking forward meeting you all and demonstrating my guitars at P&P 22… down on the farm!
