Local Music: Bill Hansell

Nov 8, 2012

Here’s something you don’t hear every day – a Guitar Pull.  The term seems to come from the Great Depression when a group would get together to play songs. Often only one player would have a guitar, so they’d “pull” it from each other to have a turn. Bill Hansell has hosted 15 previous Guitar Pulls. There’s always a featured performer, but also time for others to play. And they’ll probably share an instrument if you ask nicely – no need to pull.
