With years repairing and restoring vintage instruments between here and Nashville, he has acquired invaluable knowledge and experience, and brings all that expertise to the the shop. An excellent player and songwriter in his own right, and he happens to be a heck of a nice guy.
Multi Instrumentalist Colin Blair has been a vibrant member of the folk music community in the St. Louis area for years. A longtime employee of Music Folk in Webster Groves, he decided to bring his talents and expertise closer to home in St. Charles, and open a shop so desperately needed west of the Missouri River. An accomplished fiddle, banjo, mandolin, and guitar player, Colin has played in multiple groups over the years, most recently The Root Diggers Old Time Ozark String Band, and The Dust Covers.
