Song of the Wood

Song of the Wood
203 West State Street
Black Mountain

Song of the Wood (since 1975) is the home of rare “handcrafted” musical instruments and enchanting musical recordings you might never find in those large chain stores (not that there’s anything wrong with that!). I don’t recall anyone ever describing us as “convenient” … so we must have a different idea. It’s a quieter, slower, less commercial, more intimate approach to the senses. Probably just an outgrowth of my life as an instrument maker. You know … I’ve tried to build ’em quickly … but I just can’t. Perhaps that’s why I still have all my fingers! Maybe I’m making excuses or … maybe it’s “just an old man’s story.”
