DescriptionCanada's smallest music shop! But much more than a retail outlet.
Mountain Fruit Folklore Centre carry a diverse range of instruments that relate to many cultural genres of music. They stock a selection of guitars, mandolins, violins, cellos, basses, bows, cases and more.
Basic skills and fundamentals to blues soloing, music composition, playing in exotic scales, open guitar tunings and advanced jazz theory. Lessons also available on mandolin, Irish bouzouki, tenor banjo and Appalachian dulcimer.
Violin rentals is available with a lease to purchase option.
Primary focus is on acoustic repairs for stringed instruments; secondary training is in basic electric repairs. The violin family, including bow restoration, is a specialty of the shop.
Much more than a store - they want to connect, share, recognize and establish the music culture of the Kootenays.
