newsGuitars in Uganda!
Last May I had the privilege of visiting the DuncanAfrica trade school in Mpigi, Uganda. David Park, Darcy White and I enjoyed the trip together, taking video of life in Mpigi and at the Suubi trade school. We took in the wonderful sights and sounds of Uganda! I met eleven wonderful men and women who are employed as guitar builders in this small town outside of Kampala, the capital city. Simon, the shop manager, (on my left in the photo) has worked in this factory since it’s inception in 2008. Simon is a wonderful young man and a talented guitar luthier. On the last day I was there he showed me the guitar being made for me. I was blown away! It’s a gorgeous work of art. Can’t wait to have it and play it!
