The Handmade Music School at The Floyd Country Store & Southwest Virginia luthier Jackson Cunningham are announcing a second chance to win one of Jackson’s beautiful custom-made guitars.
The 2023 Cunningham Raffle guitar was built from a special selection of tone woods collected over the years from local luthiers, wood cutters and musicians around SWVA. The guitar was brought to life in Jackson Cunningham’s workshop in Grayson County, Virginia in the summer of 2022. It is a faithful recreation inspired by the classic steel string models from the pre-war era. This is a versatile guitar masterfully built with responsive tone. It is very adaptable to playing many styles of music from flat picking bluegrass, sweet jazz voicings, to fingerpicking folk and blues, and is a wonderful guitar for backing up an instrumentalist or accompanying vocals.
Raffle tickets are $25 each and all proceeds will benefit programming and the Share The Music Scholarship Fund at the Handmade Music School at The Floyd Country Store. The raffle will run April 16th through June 9th. The winner will be announcement during the Friday Night Jamboree on June 9th, 2023. Ticket holders must be present at the in person or livestream event or respond within 24 hours of announcement in order to win the instrument. Winner is to contact Handmade Music School at (540) 251-2571 or email@example.com.
Our Goal: To sell at least 1,000 tickets and donate $25,000 to the Handmade Music School at The Floyd Country Store.
