Bend, Oregon– Sept 1, 2013 – This weekend, September 6th, 7th and 8th in Sisters, Oregon, attendees of the 2013 Sisters Folk Festival can enter to win a guitar from the Northwest's premier manufacturer of stringed instruments, Breedlove Guitars. Beautiful in design, engineering and aesthetic, Breedlove's distinctively crafted sound has become the stuff of legend. Breedlove's craftsmanship is exceptional, and represents a benchmark for performance and value. Tickets for the Breedlove guitar drawing are available during the Festival.
Breedlove has been supporting the SFF since 1995, and the Breedlove to be raffled off this year is a Parlor guitar with Sitka spruce top, rosewood back and sides. It also features the SFF logo and “Blues To Bluegrass” tagline in mother of pearl and abalone inlay on the fretboard. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the SFF and the Sisters High School Americana Project.
Ryan Bouslaugh, head of Breedlove’s artist relations says, “Breedlove has been honored to support the Sisters Folk Festival and community involvement including the Sisters High School Americana Project since 1995.”
Breedlove is also sponsoring Breedlove artists “Betty And The Boy” at this year’s festival.
Since 1990, Breedlove has been a passionate and innovative builder of remarkable stringed instruments, spurred by a desire to challenge convention and build the instruments of tomorrow. Breedlove’s master luthiers craft acoustic guitars, mandolins, basses, and ukuleles for artists seeking self-expression and liberation through music. Breedlove’s world-class luthiers don’t just build instruments; they design distinctively crafted sound.
