Blackie and the Rodeo Kings have donated their used guitar strings and we are thrilled beyond pieces!
The band (Stephen Fearing, Colin Linden, Tom Wilson) came to Kelowna for a concert, so we hit them up on Twitter to ask if they’d be interested in donating and they said yes. After the show, Stephen Fearing and Tom Wilson (also known for Lee Harvey Osmond project) were gracious and lovely and all smiles. Stephen had his strings ready but they were back stage so he said , “follow me,” and took us to the side stage table, handed them over and asked all sorts of questions about what we do. Buddy Tom Wilson was like a school kid wanting to hand them over, and cut them right off his just used guitar before winding them into a bundle for our eager little hands 🙂
The strings will be a lot of fun to work with – we might even make a bracelet or two with two strings – one from each artist! Stay tuned and follow us on our Twitter or Instagram where we post daily updates and many of our current bracelets.
