It’s Bowmageddon – Gitty Goes Crazy With a Violin Bow!

Cigar Box Nation TV – The BOWING Episode!In this episode of Cigar Box Nation TV, Ben Gitty attacks pretty much everything he can find with violin bows… from a dulcimer (it’s still Dulcimer Week here on CBN TV!) to a one-string Vaudeville fiddle, a one-string gutbucket bass to a banjo… and then it gets weird: metal trash can lid, steel dust pan, and even a 21″ brass cymbal!

Other highlights include a cover of A. J. Gaither’s song “Last Free Exit” (complete with kazoo solo), a replay of Shane and Ben discovering the HORSE FIDDLE in a museum in York, PA and more!
