The Music Show is delighted to announce that Chris Larkin Guitars has joined the list of exhibitors for the event, which takes over the Main Hall, RDS in February.

“Ireland is producing some wonderful instruments,” Music Show organiser Mark Hogan told the Hot Press news desk. “And Chris Larkin is right up there at the cutting edge. It’s great that musicians, who come to The Music Show in their thousands, will be able to try these superb guitars themselves and meet the makers.”

Chris offers original, practical and beautiful designs that are completely unique. In his third decade of guitar making, Chris describes his guitars as “individual instruments for individuals”.

There is definitely an indigenous aspect to what Chris Larkin does. “Over the past decade, we have been actively searching out and using as much Irish grown wood as possible,” he said. He has also made extensive and experimental use of lesser-known timbers, adding to the authenticity and originality of his work.

The Music Show takes place at the RDS, Dublin on February 25 and 26, 2012.
