George was a business student in college (UNR in Nevada). He was going to be an accountant, but we all know how hard it is to find work in that field. So, he took the easy way out and became a musician & luthier instead. George started making dulcimers & harps way back in 1994. In the late 1990's, George got his first taste of making hurdy gurdies and found his true musical love in these wild and wonderful instruments.

As a luthier apprentice, Earl joins us with years of experience as a hurdy gurdy player! His enthusiasm and love for all aspects of the instrument is a perfect match for our craft. When not in the woodshop, you can also find him performing under the name 'Earl the Bard', singing and playing his hurdy gurdy throughout the west coast.
