Through audio recordings, photographs, video, and live demonstration, William Ritter will highlight and discuss the styles of three Mitchell county guitar players against the backdrop of pre-WWII guitar playing in Western North Carolina. William’s presentation will also feature vintage instruments, a guitar made by one of the players (Ray Dellinger), and one of William’s instruments currently on display in Sound Machines: Stringed Instruments of the Capozzoli Guitar Company.

Scholars & Scones is a monthly educational program which invites patrons to spend a morning sipping coffee, eating locally-baked goodies, and learning about the latest research, writing, and creativity taking place in our region. There are complimentary breakfast goods from Backstreet Bakery and fresh cups of Hatchet Coffee Co. Dangerfield Blend will be served.
