Playing with Your Feet: A Guitar Pedal Tour with Russell Broom and Keane Eng

In celebration of the National Music Centre's "Year of the Guitar," join Russell Broom and his guest Keane Eng from Calgary boutique pedal company Dingotone for a guided tour of their respective pedalboards. The guitar virtuosos will explore some rare vintage stomp boxes and discuss how guitar pedals influence the sound of the instrument.
