Showtime: Approximately 30 to 45 minutes in length or as needed.
Show Includes: Participatory performances of traditional songs played on a fiddle, banjos, dulcimer, mandolin, and a "One String Pork-n-Bean Guitar," TM - Patent 1984.
Jeff and his father have handmade his instruments over the years. The "One String Pork-n-Bean Guitars" are made at the fair or festival and are complimentary to audience members. The guitars will bear the logo of YOUR FAIR or FESTIVAL...theme, dates, etc. We will provide these labels (with your artwork) or will design one for you.
Jeff concludes the program, "jamming" with the audience on their homemade guitars. They are encouraged to take their playable and tunable guitars as a free keepsake of the fair or festival....a great advertisement and marketing tool for your event.
