Martin on Main ....
Today was the 10th Annual Martin on Main Festival in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, which celebrates the legacy of C. F. Martin Guitar. My picture shows just two of the many musicians that took part in the celebration. If you look on the left of this picture you can just make out the special guitar in my extra. It is a Custom Signature Edition dreadnought featuring imprinted original “Inside Out” artwork by illustrator, luthier, musician and Martin archivist Dick Boak. The building shown on the guitar is of the Martin factory building.
C. F. Martin Guitar company was established in 1833 in Nazareth, Pa and is just one of the many place we have taken visitors to our area. The factory that manufactures all the Martin Guitars plus an awesome museum is located just minutes from our doorstep.
We have been lucky enough to live in Bethlehem for the past 25 years ... it is a wonderful place to call home.
From Bethlehem you can be in New York City or Philadelphia in just over an hour and the Pocono Mountains in less than an hour. But we are partial to simply staying in our area and visiting the surrounding municipalities .... including Nazareth! It's one of our favorite places!
