About the New Orleans Cigar Box Guitar Festival:

The 3rd Annual New Orleans Cigar Box Guitar Festival is a celebration of the art, music and history of homemade stringed instruments. Covering 4 days and 3 venues, the festival is widely considered to be the world's premier CBG event. Fourteen professional acts from eight states and Australia will perform, and builders will gather to compare notes and compete for prizes. The phenomenal Samantha Fish leads the exciting slate of entertainers, along with Shane Speal & the Snakes, Blues legend Little Freddie King, April Mae & the June Bugs, Cash O'Riley, Steve Arvey, Ivor Simpson Kennedy, and numerous others. Ticket purchases are tax-deductible donations to the New Orleans Blues Society, a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to preserving, supporting and promoting the Blues. Separate tickets are available for each day's activities and a 4-day pass affords attendees the total educational and entertainment experience, plus a festival t-shirt.
