claremont's folk music center

while we were in claremont for the tour of california, we made a stop at this incredible music shop owned by ben harper's family - the folk music center.  the place is packed with a wide array of musical instruments from around the world.  while they specialize in stringed folk instruments, there also seems to be an emphasis on instruments that convey a deep sense of cultural identity.

it is definitely worth a stop if you are in claremont.

Love this photo! The Folk Music Center is a fascinating shop and a great place to see some live music. It's like a store and museum in one.
