Stick in a Box - a celebration of handmade music by Ken Vickerson & Friends


Ken Vickerson shares his love for the humble cigar box guitar (CBG) in this exhibition of guitars produced over the past three years. The CBG, also known as the poor man’s guitar, is steeped in history and has provided entertainment and satisfaction for generations. Commonly made from empty cigar boxes and materials at hand, these instruments have recently experienced a resurgence in popular culture. They provide an ideal vehicle for both musical and visual artistic expression
