Luthiers, musicians, collectors and lovers of fine instruments and great music will gather at the Deloraine StringFest Tasmania in March 2014.
Deloraine StringFest Tasmania (StringFest) is a celebration of stringed instruments, especially those made in Tasmania or made with Tasmanian woods such as blackwood, huon pine, sassafras and macrocarpa. Tasmania has many fine artisans who create guitars, ukuleles, violins, harps, banjos, lutes and other fine instruments. Tasmanian woods are used Australia-wide and are keenly sought by instrument makers internationally. Australian instruments by both large manufacturers and artisans have achieved international fame, and this is an opportunity for musicians, luthiers and enthusiasts alike to gather, display, sell and discuss their craft and love of instruments.
StringFest will bring together Instrument makers, tone-wood suppliers, musicians, groups and lovers of these fine instruments for displays, jam sessions, busking, concerts and workshops.
Musicians and makers attending StringFest will hold and attend workshops on playing and making instruments.
