2018 Instrument Raffles

In 2016 our instrument raffles raised over $6,000 to support the education outreach programs and events of Sisters Folk Festival, Inc., including the acclaimed Sisters Americana Project.

We have two stunning instruments again this year – one of which is sure to be a collectors item as it features a beautiful inlay honoring the cancelled 2017 Festival.

The Breedlove guitar is on display at Paulina Springs Books in Sisters and the Deering banjo is hanging at Melvin’s by Newport Avenue Market. Both locations are selling tickets for the instrument they have on display or you can purchase them with the link below.

A huge thank you to our local merchants for helping with the raffle and to our good friends at Breedlove Guitars and Deering Banjo for their generosity!

BREEDLOVE PARLOR GUITAR

For the singer-songwriter looking for a warm, present midrange that projects valiantly from a smaller, more comfortable silhouette. Breedlove Custom Parlor non-cutaway with a Sitka Spruce top, Figured Myrtlewood back and sides, Maple neck with a slotted headstock and a custom 2017 Sisters Folk Festival inspired inlay – guaranteed to be a collector’s item!

The Breedlove guitar is on display at Paulina Springs Books in Sisters and tickets can be purchased there until the Wednesday before the Festival.
