We had a blast and met a lot of great people last weekend, here are some memories we wanted to share. Below you can see Billy Strings, some of the members of Greensky Bluegrass and the Deep Fried Pickle Project jug band all checking out our instruments.
Last weekend we were able to get all the instruments up to Feral Fest 2016 and on top of that we won the sculpture contest! This is an amazing festival with a great atmosphere and even better people. We finally were able to get the pickups hooked up on the BasTrak and it did not disappoint, check out the video with REDD banging out some tunes!
We are proud to announce that we are officially entered into ArtPrize 2016,
Founders Brewing Company is hosting us for the duration of the event. The Banjo and BasTrak will be displayed along with the Dobro which is currently in the planning stages. The trio will be known as Roots Rust Revival.
We still have quite a few things that we want to try but It is in its final state of being. This is more of a living sculpture in that we will be changing string diameters and head materials until we get the sound we want.
So the 1/2" braided steel rope may be a bit big but we had to start somewhere. Also the leaf spring is temporary until we get the hoop made for the drum.
