Cigar Box Guitars

June 13, 2012

Creativity in action

Rick Harford emailed me last week about the music programs he offers. He is not only a musician but a craftsman woodworker and builds guitars using cigar boxes, cookie tins, and bed pans. Yes, he builds them and plays them, like a guitar. Perhaps you are familiar?! When I googled cigar box guitars several sites appear. I suggest you check out his website at and listen to some of the music. He is interested in following up on some work he did with a high school teacher and offering opportunities to students by visiting your schools. Rick can be reached at
