The Holy Grail Guitar Show is not only the best luthier guitar show in the world (yes, I mean it) it's also a great opportunity to attend to a great selection of conferences. And I am not saying that because I was part of the program! For example, there was one conference I did not want to miss, the one given by Kathryn Marie Dudley about "The Magic of Handmade Guitars".
Kathryn wrote an excellent book called "Guitar Makers" for which I did an audio interview with her that you can listen to in this article.
I hope you will enjoy the video recording of Kathryn's conference.
