Press Reviews / Interviews

For Nadaband and Bill Jehle - cigar box guitarist, maker, and historian:

  • June 14, 2013 - Maisonneuve: A Quarterly of Arts, Opinion & Ideas, "Cigar Notes" by Andrew Guilbert. Focused on Lenny Piroth-Robert (aka Daddy Mojo), Andrew and I talked for nearly an hour about the history of the CBG. Interesting thing was that nearly everything I told him was not even covered in my book, "One Man's Trash." There should be quite a few surprises in there for you CBG history buffs [and after reading it the surprise is on me because it was all incorrect... nice].
  • August 17, 2012 - The Toronto Standard "You're Playing the What? (The Cigar Box Guitar)" almost gets the early history right and mentions Jehle's Cigar Box Guitar Museum, the history book "One Man's Trash" and uses detritomusicology in a sentance, by Shari Kasman.
