Jeremiah Sundown returns to Opera House April 27

Handmade guitar-maker at Opera House in April

Beau Theige Handmade guitars April 2018 at the Historic Ellendale Opera House. Tuesdays 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursdays 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and by appointment 701-349-2490.

This is a very interesting show that features handmade guitars made out of items from around the house like old cake pans, etc. He encourages people to take them off the wall and plug them into an amplifier and play them. This is art you can touch and play. You almost have to see them to really understand the art involved. A really different exhibit than we have ever had.
