In The Moment ... October 24, 2019 Show 686 Hour 1

Sioux Falls musician Josh Rieck sees the world of guitar building as a beautiful crossroad of music and visual art. He began studying the craft in 2002. After completing his master's degree at the University of South Dakota he studied the history of musical instruments at the National Music Museum in Vermillion. The luthier constructs new instruments and repairs injured ones at J. Rick Lutherie in Sioux Falls.

Guitarist Chris Champion of Madison demos Rieck's guitars. A versatile player, Champion leans toward jazz and blues. He also teaches classes out of his studio at J. Rieck Music.

The builder and the player bring Rieck's "South Dakota" guitar to In The Moment for Moment in Sound.
