Guitar show shines spotlight on student work

 Permanent link   All Posts

2011 Guitar ShowStudent work was on display at Southeast Technical’s annual guitar show May 10 on the college’s Red Wing campus. Instruments crafted by first- and second-year students in both the Guitar Repair and Building program and Violin Repair program were played by professional musicians and recording artists, including Phil Heywood, National fingerpicking champion and recording artist who has toured and performed with Leo Kottke; Bill Cagley, a well-respected guitarist best known for flatpicking traditional American and Irish fiddle tunes; and Bob Douglas, an early member of the Prairie Home Companion Powdermilk Biscuit band and “mandolin wizard.”

Graduates of Southeast Technical’s Guitar Repair and Building program and Violin Repair program are in high demand. Both programs are known nationwide for producing skilled technicians, many of which find employment in music stores, independent repair shops, manufacturers, and through self-employment.
