Guitar OR has had the pleasure of teaming up with the Calgary Folk Festival for 7 consecutive years now. Together we are able to ensure that all the performers have access to a full line of adjustments and repairs for the entire event.
Calgarys climate is hard on instruments. Especially some that are coming from far off destinations with completely different humidity and temperature levels. This causes moderate to severe fluctuations in the wood of the instruments. We often see cracking, warping and finish issues. More moderate issues will be string height movement, fret and tuning issues, along with electrical problems.
We are on-site from start to finish each day, allowing us to help remedy these issues and keep the music coming. Some of the instruments are foreign, but fortunately share similarities with all stringed instruments. With a proper dose of time and skill, we are able to get the instruments playing and sounding as good as ever.
As fans of music ourselves, we are happy to play our role in keeping the Calgary Folk Festival going strong.
