Over the couple of years I’ve messed around with cigar box guitars I’ve had the good fortune of meeting some interesting people, both in person and online. One of my British CBG acquaintances recently posted a video about a fellow Brit named Davy Sanger. Sanger and his lady friend travel the byways of the United Kingdom with several horse-drawn wagons that are both their home and a mobile musical stage. They live by the wayside as they travel from event to event with a mobile venue from which musicians and poets perform. Sanger’s Stage Show is the last of a breed that was once common in England.
There are many reasons I’m embedding the video and after watching it I’m sure you’ll know what some of them are.
