A Strumming Success - Master Luthier David Nichols
Folk artist David Nichols is a musician who can create the very instruments that he loves to play. He builds guitars that look and sound beautiful, using materials from as far away as Russia and as close as the Adirondacks. Folklorist Hannah Harvester brings us that story as part of an on-going collaboration between Mountain Lake PBS and TAUNY, Traditional Arts in Upstate New York (www.tauny.org).
