Chickenbone John, ‘The Godfather of the Cigar Box Guitar’, has become a huge favourite with highly successful workshop/concerts demonstrating how to make and play 3-string cigar box guitars.

In performance he is joined by his band, Chickenbone Blues in reviving the authentic sounds of early blues.
