What The Heck Is A Steel Guitar w/ Jeff Plankenhorn
Telluride Music Co. is exited to invite our friend Jeff Plankenhorn and Empyreal Instruments for an in-store performance and workshop all about the steel guitar. Based in Austin, Texas, Jeff Plankenhorn has developed a strong reputation for his tasteful slide licks and vocal talent. For many years, he backed up some fo Texas' most influential artists like Ruthie Foster, Joe Ely, and Bob Schneider Music. Now, he is on his own, performing his own music, on his own instrument no less. We're excited to hear him play some of his original tunes and talk about his instrument, how it inspires him and how it affects and guides the song-writing process. This workshop will take the form of an open performance, and audience members are encouraged to ask questions and guide the discussion. We'll be getting started at 6 p.m. This event is free and open to the public, but donations are greatly appreciated.
