Old Notes Vintage Guitars seeks out, restores, and resells vintage guitars and instruments from the 1950s and 1960s. Musicians Ken and Leslie Uhnak told us, "Guitars from this era represented an emerging expression of American music history that is rapidly fading from memory. Our mission is to preserve the spirit of this bygone era, and keep it alive through music played on the instruments of the time."
When we asked them what inspires their work, they had this to say: "We are musicians; we love the look and sound of these guitars and want to reintroduce them to a new generation of musicians."
They'll have a booth full of boxy-bluesy parlour and arch top guitars ready to adopt. And the other half of their booth features their project, The Brolly Drolly, specializing in Victorian through mid-century umbrellas in all of their glory.
Nothing will rain on this parade.
Check them out in their double-wide at the Flea on Sunday, June 14 from 10 am - 4 pm along the Providence River Greenway!
