2011 Breedlove, Two Old Hippies Festival

2011 Breedlove, Two Old Hippies Festival

Last weekend, Bend, Oregon was the place to be, as people from all over gathered together to share in their passion for music and fine instruments at the 2011 Breedlove Festival, presented by Two Old Hippies. The Festival began at 10AM and offered a day that was jam packed with performances by Breedlove artists, a clinic by Rock & Roll legend, Bob Johnston, and a contest in which one lucky (and skilled) performer won a brand new Breedlove guitar.

In addition to all of the action taking place out in front, the Breedlove factory offered tours throughout the day as well as educational sessions on tone woods, strings, and more. The festival wrapped up around 10PM with a performance by Friday’s Child, and as the final attendants left for the night, there was no question that that this year’s festival was a success.

Breedlove and Two Old Hippies would like to offer a special thank you to all that attended, to Bob Johnston, and to all of our Breedlove artists that performed.
