Neko at the Ryman, Dan’s signature guitar
Just got a press release from the Americana Music Association announcing that Neko Case will be making her Ryman debut this weekend. If you happen to be in the Nashville area, swing on by. Jason Lytle (Grandaddy) is opening, as he has been for her recent U.S. tour. (Read my thoughts on Case’s Seattle show.) Tickets are available from the Ryman and via Ticketmaster.
In other, completely unrelated news, Martin Guitars now has a special Dan Tyminski-designed artist signature series custom guitar (Martin D-28 Dan Tyminski Custom Edition). According to a press release from Rounder Records:
The official unveiling of the new D-28 took place at the Summer NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) conference in Nashville, TN July 17 – 19. Tyminski joins a distinguished group of guitarists such as Eric Clapton, Johnny Cash, and Woody Guthrie who also have signature models. Each of the Dan Tyminski Custom Edition guitars will have an interior label that is personally signed by Tyminski and numbered in succession.
