Local luthier Drew Heinonen makes guitar from trees grown by Jimmy Carter


Local luthier and musician Drew Heinonen has been offered the opportunity of a lifetime: a specially commissioned guitar made with a rare type of wood grown by former US President Jimmy Carter. Drew talks with host Will Moore about how he got involved with this unique series of instruments being made, and how he’s putting a Cook County twist on the guitar that still connects the back to the 39th President himself.
