Exhibit on Ky. stringed instrument makers to run through Sept. 1

MAYSVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Kentuckians who are seen as masters in making fiddles, banjos, dulcimers and other stringed instruments are being featured in an exhibit at the Kentucky Gateway Museum Center in Maysville.

“Made to be Played: Traditional Art of Kentucky Luthiers” will be on display through Sept. 1. It was first shown in 2007 in Berea and has been on tour around the state since then.

The Kentucky Arts Council says the exhibit is the result of years of research and fieldwork by the Kentucky Folklife Program.
