Once a year the Santa Barbara Acoustic Instrument Celebration brings together the world’s finest luthiers with gifted teachers and musicians, combining their passions to celebrate the healing power of working with hands & music, and supporting their year round efforts to bring lutherie and music education to each of their communities.
The Santa Barbara Acoustic Instrument Celebration is a unique opportunity to meet many contemporary masters of lutherie, and to see, play and purchase some of the finest handmade instruments directly from the builder. Many of these lutherie legends will be in attendance along with numerous contemporary icons who continue to set the standard and break new ground. Please join us for an unparalleled festival including fingerstyle, jazz, blues, classical, and slack key acoustic music all weekend at a relaxed setting in one of America’s premier destination towns.
