February 23 at Curiosity Club: Luthier Jeffrey R. Elliott
Posted on 19 February 2016
Jeffrey R. Elliott's life has really been dedicated to one thing: the classical guitar. He learned to play when he was 16, went on to apprentice with Richard Schneider for six years, and then moved to Portland in 1976 for a life of restoring, writing, teaching, and making.
One of America's foremost luthiers, his discussion is sure to cover a range of topics while highlighting his restoration of two important classical guitars: an 1869 Francisco Gonzalez and an 1888 Antonio de Torres.
Elliott finds time for some Curiosity Club discussion and Q&A among his busy schedule of magazine writing, lecturing for the Guild of American Luthiers, and working on his long list of commissions.
