This is how to do history

19 08 2007

This is totally un-book or un-writing related, but an interesting link to explore. I attend an after-theatre cabaret yesterday evening and one of the surprise appearances was the Six String Nation guitar. The guitar is made of pieces that are historically and/or culturally significant to Canada. If you click here you can learn more about the guitar and explore the history behind different parts of it.  It was an amazing thing to see and to hear played.
Edit: Actually there is something book-related.  There is a piece from Lucy Maude Montgomery’s birthplace on the guitar.
