  • 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm HANGING TREE GUITARS: FREEMAN VINES
    12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
    Portsmouth Art & Cultural Center, 400-420 High Street, Portsmouth, 23704, United States of America

    This exhibition juxtaposes tintypes by Timothy Dufy, photographer, musicologist, and founder of the Music Maker Relief Foundation and introduces the work of Freeman Vines, blues guitarist, luthier, and woodcarver, born in Green County, North Carolina.
    Vines’ family grew up on land where his ancestors previously sharecropped and were plantation slaves. Despite having no formal education, the family produced many musicians. Vines’ siblings, the Glorifying Vines Sisters, were a touring gospel group with whom he toured and played guitar. During a stop on the gospel circuit, Vines heard a sound that would haunt and eventually consume him. He began building guitars as a quest to recreate that sound. He recycled materials from old buildings and cast-away items. He did this because he believes that each tree has a soul. Its wood holds the spirit and evokes the history of how it was used. This spirit is given voice in each guitar that Vines builds. He says that, unlike a Gibson, for instance, with a uniform sound, his guitars all hold a sound of their own. Vines once purchased two planks from a black walnut tree, all that was left of a “hanging tree” also known as a “lynching tree,” where a Black man was reportedly murdered some 90 years ago. The energy from those planks profoundly affected him. Eventually, he met Timothy Dufy who had sought him out to photograph him and his guitars, another life-altering event.
