february Issue

This February, SLUG offers a look into a sometimes unseen but always beloved part of Utah’s local music: the instrument builders and teachers. On the cover, SLUG designer Christian Broadbent crafts a simple and elegant acoustic guitar with a twist, stringing readers through the beloved cities and communities that it upholds.
