Meet the men who make and play cigar box guitars
In this fascinating documentary, we meet the passionate makers and players of cigar box guitars. Created by the men who play them, these unique handmade instruments are designed and constructed from recycled materials.
Born from the Blues, their simple, low cost, ‘no rules’ approach means anyone can have a go. Although the cigar box guitar has a long history in the USA, it has only recently become popular with musicians in the UK. This film reveals how just three chords, played on their instruments, has revolutionised their lives.
