“Well, we’ve got nothing new and exciting. We like *old* and exciting,” David Bradshaw joked when he learned of the Folklore Centre’s BOH victory. Thanks to owners Tom and Marla Dorward, the welcoming downtown music shop has been offering the best in elegant vintage instruments, as well as new ones, since 1971. “I love those guys,” gushed one BOH voter about the small, very helpful staff, who also do repairs. They’re currently boasting many beauties worth seeing, and playing, including a selection of archtop guitars, ukeleles up the wazoo and an exotic new arrival: a handmade Bolivian charango.
