Though my focus here at the Instrument Works is on stringed instruments, tonight at the gallery opening (you know about the gallery opening right? And you're coming right? Okay, good. Glad to hear it.) part of the event will involve getting the audience to be a part of the festivities. To that end some friends made some bean shakers in soda cans, and I made a small assortment of bottle-cap shakers.
I especially like the tambourine in the middle, made from the top of a cookie tin. The bottle caps at the top are real loud, it should be fun for someone to play tonight. I think it will be a hoot. See you there.
