Welcome

Strings Attached project’s third collection of intergenerational recordings utilizing the developing talents of its students and seasoned local musicians. The project finds its home in American roots music genres, this time with a focus on cowboy and frontier American music.
Inspired by and covering the songs of Stephen Foster, Bob Wills, Jimmie Rodgers, writings of John A. Lomax and Hollywood’s cowboy craze of the “Golden Era.” We hope you enjoy it – Happy Trails!

The Strings Attached project connects youth, ages 5 to 17, with music education using American roots music. We learn to play instruments such as guitar, ukulele, dobro, banjitar and mandolin.  If you would like to learn more about the project, please click on the file symbol above and to the left.

 From now until Christmas Day, 2016, Strings Attached is collecting donations through the Arts and Education Council – St. Louis for our 2017 Guitar Awards. Each year, we give guitars and ukuleles to music students who spend at least 1 year with their music studies, attend lessons regularly and perform in the community. To date we’ve given 70 awarded instruments to local youth to keep as their own.
Your donations will help provide next year’s instruments. Donations are tax-deductible and a good alternative gift-giving consideration. Please share! Thanks!!  DONATE AT Strings Attached Award Guitars
