Parishville, NY, Dec 26, 2012 — This holiday week, we're taking a second listen to one of our favorite series of 2012. This May, we profiled people doing traditional work, including a North Country craftsman who builds stringed instruments and applies inlay to them in a way that is the same as it has been done for generations.
Joel Hurd, a guitar enthusiast himself, traveled to Parishville to meet Tracy Cox.
