From Wood to Singing Guitar is an Appalshop documentary film showcasing Wayne C. Henderson, the master musician and master luthier from the small town of Rugby, Virginia near the foot of Mount Rogers (the highest point in Virginia). A skilled craftsman & respected musician by his teens, Wayne was taught and encouraged by those around him including the folk hero E.C. Ball and the kind & generous fiddle maker, Albert Hash. Learning much more than just guitar building and playing, Wayne continues to do the same for the younger generations by sharing the craft with others like Gerald Anderson, who is passing it onto Spencer Strickland, and encourages any young musician to play with him and his friends such as Doc Watson, Steve Kilby, Herb Key, Jeff Little, Sammy Shelor, Roni Stoneman, Robin Kessinger, The Kruger Brothers, and the list goes on.
