I'm thrilled to be returning in October to the Woodstock Invitational, an annual gathering of some of the world's best guitar makers (including Linda Manzer, builder of my most prized guitar) and more than a few brilliant players as well. I'll be covering the event for Acoustic Guitar, a festival sponsor, posting photos and checking out the dazzling display of instruments. I'm also teaching a workshop titled Writing Songs with Guitar on Friday, October 21. It's a real honor to be part of a lineup of clinicians that includes Happy Traum, Larry Campbell, Pierre Bensusan, Cindy Cashdollar, and many more. Get the full details on the festival, which runs October 21–23.
