The 2022 Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival afforded us a beautiful opportunity to reunite Blue Guitars luthier Steve Grimes with The Jazz Laureate – his contribution to The Blue Guitar Collection.

Steve Grimes with The Jazz Laureate

It was wonderful to hear Steve’s reminiscences of the Blue Guitar project – his first contact with Scott Chinery and the thought process behind the creation of The Jazz Laureate. You can enjoy the conversation in this video interview with the man himself.

And in this video Steve shares how he overcame the challenges of keeping a Blue Guitar blue.

Thank you so much Steve for your expertise and wisdom.
