To India and Back with David Murray (Dehradun Guitar Company)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A lot of luthiers make sacrifices to pull off their craft but David Murray has taken it to a whole nother level. Murray will talk about the journey he’s taken since 2010 with the creation of the Dehradun Guitar Company in India. Through guitar making, Murray and his wife have given a second chance to individuals who were living on the fringes of society, many of whom assumed they had no salable skills. It would be a riveting, inspirational story even if the guitars weren’t beautiful, but they certainly are.

David Murray

Founder, Dehradun Guitar Company
David Murray has one of the guitar world's most unlikely backstories: He grew up in Tennessee and became a guitarmaker through the traditional channels. But in 2010, he ended up moving with his wife, Mel, to the Himilayan foothills, teaching local artisans the craft of lutherie and giving them a chance at a better life.
