Rick Kelly and his young apprentice Cindy Hulej, build handcrafted guitars out of wood reclaimed from old hotels, bars, churches and other local buildings. Featuring great guitar performances and stories from a cast of sharp players and artists including Bill Frisell, Nels Cline (Wilco) Marc Ribot (Tom Waits, Marianne Faithful), Kirk Douglas (The Roots), Jim Jarmusch (Sqürl) Christine Bougie (Bahamas), Lenny Kaye and Eleanor Friedberger (Fiery Furnaces).

Generously sponsored by TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival and Brian Wolfe, RE/MAX Professionals.

Reviews

A sweet, enlightening and inspiring documentary that pays homage to the way things were done before mass production. It’s a miracle that such a place still exists, so it’s only fitting that Kelly’s business get this loving tribute.
