A Winston Churchill Memorial Trust award is a boost for this young luthier from South West Wales.

Creating electric guitars from recycled or salvaged materials, George Parfitt is founder of Dockyard Guitars in Pembroke Dock.  The award will enable him to explore the cultural Cigar Box Guitar Movement in U.S.A.

I first met George Parfitt sitting cross-legged on the grass in front of his tent at the 2016, ‘Unearthed In A Field’ festival. He was surrounded by a range of his cigar box guitars.

I next saw George before he dashed of to Europe for a couple of months in autumn last year. Here, I catch up with him again with some of his backstory from that interview and exciting news of his forthcoming pilgrimmage to take in the Cigar Box Guitar revolution in America.
