Instrument makers of the Ozarks: The Life & Work of Ed Stilley

Enjoy an afternoon with Still On the Hill, this unique concert of stories and songs focused on handmade instruments outside of what more people think of as a guitar, fiddle or banjo. These creations are adorned with marbles, bbs, paint and bones. Inside, there are metallic skeletons consisting of saw blades, door springs, chainsaw parts and even glass bottles.  There will be 8 of Ed Stilley’s creations at the concert where attendees will be invited to hold and play the instruments after the performance. A book signing follows

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition No Idle Hands: The Myths and Makers of Tramp Art.   By Museum Admission, adult single museum visit is $7.00 for New Mexico residents, $12.00 for out-of-state visitors; youth 16 and under and Museum of New Mexico Foundation members always free.
