The Larrivée Guitar
March 13, 2017
This summer, the McMichael Gallery of Canada will be celebrating it's 50th Anniversary. Larrivée is proud to be part of this celebration by participating in The Group Of Seven Guitar Project. The project, started by Linda Manzer, is seven unique guitars built by seven unique luthiers, each paying homage to one of the original Group of Seven artists. The seven luthiers consist of Jean Larrivée and six former protege's: Linda Manzer, William "Grit" Laskin, George Gray, Tony Duggen-Smith, Sergei de Jonge, and David Wren. Each of them remarkable master luthiers in their own right today.
To view Jean Larrivée's contribution to the project with homage to A.Y. Jackson, have a look in our archive here.
