New Acoustic Gallery newsletter, Sept. 2013

Thanks to Oliver Waitze of the New Acoustic Gallery (NAG) in Wuppertal, Germany, for the September 2013 issue of its newsletter. The NAG stocks the finest acoustic instruments - guitars, banjos, mandolins, and violins - from such makers as AJL, Bourgeois, Beneteau, Collings, Santa Cruz, Striebel, Furch, Sigma, Graf, Dupont, Nechville, Weber, and Deering.

The New Acoustic Gallery now has a new, more user-friendly website, which has kept the familiar videos of old concerts at the NAG and and audio clips of diverse instruments. Instruments now in stock include the Weber Gallatin F octave mandolin with custom finish (€3190), Dupont Django guitar MD 50 E (€3900), and Nechville Classic DLX 5-string banjo in gold and engraved (€5990), all shown below.

The first autumn workshop at the NAG's new location will be given by Jacques Stotzem on 15 September 2013, 10:00-17:00, and will illustrate the application of fingerstyle guitar technique to blues, ragtime, jazz, swing, and his own compositions. Stotzem's 'After the Gold Rush' can be seen on YouTube. The admission fee (€85) includes free admission to the evening concert on 14 September at the Bürgerbanhhof, Wuppertal Vohwinkel.

Full details of the NAG's 10-year jubilee concert at Schloss Lüntenbeck are on the news page of the NAG website. The concert, by 'The Duo' of Darol Anger and Mike Marshall, will be on 27 October 2013 at 19:30. Admission is €30.
