George Brin

When George retired from fifty years of active litigation practice several years ago to concentrate on work as a mediator and arbitrator, he found himself with considerably more time to pursue his interest in the arts.  His son, an industrial designer and luthier in Connecticut, introduced him to the interesting concept of creating stringed instruments utilizing sound bodies that have been part of the American tradition of folk music. Since then, George has made stringed instruments, primarily "necked" dulcimers, with such varied sound bodies as antique copper and brass bowls, vintage cookie, candy and biscuit tins and several varieties of gourds. In this process he has married these bodies to shaped necks, fret boards and sound boards that he has crafted, constructing them from exotic hardwoods from around the world.
