This week, we're sharing another unforgettable session from the 2023 Fretboard Summit: A  conversation with acclaimed luthiers Wayne and EJ Henderson.

Wayne is a legendary figure in the world of acoustic guitars, an NEA National Heritage Fellow, and the subject of Allen St. John's 2005 book, 'Clapton's Guitar.' Daughter EJ (Elizabeth Jayne) Henderson is continuing the Henderson legacy of instrument building out of her Asheville, NC workshop, but with a focus on sustainable woods.

During our chat, we hear about how they each took up guitar building; the instruments they brought to the Summit; their current output; how their workshops differ; and much more. We also hear the duo play a couple of songs. 

Recorded live at the Fretboard Summit on August 25, 2023.

Our next Summit takes place August 22-24, 2024 at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music.
