Call me crazy, but I am working details for a "Steel Guitar Summit" show in North Carolina featuring lap steel & pedal steel guitar. November 16th...in Greensboro NC. I will give more details ASAP.

(Live bands, vendors, demo of lap & pedal steels...)

That's not crazy at all.

Maybe you can expand the scope and rope in some dobro/reso makers/dealers/players, there must be a decent number in the area. Or not.

Yes Gene, I am working on vendors now. Already have a weissenborn builder, a lap builder, & a pedal steel builder. Looking for others, and a dobro builder, & others would be welcome.

Thanks Ashley, I am making this a "Educational/Entertainment" type event. A new type of event for these new times. I will need all the luck & help I can get to pull it off. I am just trying to raise awareness & profile of the steel guitar, both lap steel and pedal steel. Maybe some new, and young people will fall in love with this magic sound.

At the same time I am trying to do this event, there is another thread on the SGF, about is steel guitar fading away. If we don't do something to introduce steel into any and all types of music, I guess it could happen. But, from my view, these are exciting times to be a lap steel player, and I am going to try anything I can to reach new fans of the sound.

You may want to post this in the "Event Announcements" section of the Forum, if you haven't already done so.

Sounds like a great event.
