Florida's Handmade Instrument Makers
At the Luthier's Exhibit located inside the Museum you'll meet some of the state's makers of handcrafted stringed instruments who use both raw materials and commercially available supplies to construct one-of-a-kind guitars, banjos, dulcimers and other musical instruments
We're currently working to plan the 2019 festival. Listed is a sampling of Luthiers appearing at previous festivals.
