Artist visitor:

Matty Baratto stopped in at Borealis the other day and brought this beautiful, historical guitar he made out of a 90 year old maple tree.  The tree had stood on Howard Street in Hibbing and was cut down because it was diseased.  He took a couple of pieces of wood home to California and created this beautiful sounding guitar called a cig fiddle. 

 

Matty makes guitars out of cigar boxes.  Most notable is one he made for Paul McCartney of the Beatles.  He also made a wine box into an amplifier for Sir Paul.  It was amazing that he came and shared his music and talent with us.
