Kalamazoo Gals

Women worked in all sorts of jobs usually done by men during World War II.... one of them was making Gibson Guitars.  And apparently they made EXCELLENT guitars that are sought after for their wonderful sound.

I found out about this from Lauren Sheehan, a local blues musician who participated in the Kalamazoo project.  She recorded a CD where she played guitars made by these wartime women workers.
