Maleny luthier, Doug Eaton, and his partner, Dale Jacobsen, will curate Sound Builders Expo 2018 at Magda Community Artz, 80 Boundary Road, Bardon on July 14 and 15.

Fifteen of Australia’s finest makers of guitars, mandolins, harps and all manner of instruments, including a harpsichord, are coming from as far away as Victoria to show their instruments, answer questions, and talk (as they love to do) about what motivates them to pursue this old and respected craft. Plus an intimate, acoustic Showcase Concert on the Saturday evening.

Free entry 10am – 5pm Saturday, and 10am – 3pm Sunday. The evening concert is $20 ($15 conc). For further info: www.soundbuilders.org
