Gibson Pickin' Parlour
It's no secret that the name Gibson is synonymous with top quality. That's why we are so pleased that these premier guitar makers will be joining us on board this year and bringing a handful of their finely crafted acoustic line with them. The Gibson Pickin' Parlour will be more than just a show and tell, as every guest is encouraged to pick up any instrument that catches their eye and get to playin'! Gibson's own, Lucas Hubbard will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have about this beautiful line of acoustics.

Snake Farm Guitar Workshop with Ray Wylie Hubbard & Lucas Hubbard
Snake Farm Guitar Workshop - just sounds nasty!
