Steeltown Acoustic Music Experience

Steeltown Acoustic Instruments Experience (SAIE) is an interactive, educational and a “play music on the spot” experience for people to show their musical talent and to learn about a variety of instruments and how they connect to Celtic music.

For the past ten years Jim and Sue Borowski have exhibited and shared their personal collection of instruments with the outside public. The collection includes violins, violas, Cello, mandolins, guitar, bouzouki, harp, autoharp, lap dulcimer, hammered dulcimer, bodhrans, Small pipes, Highland Bagpipes and Uilleann pipes. Many people have commented that the SAIE inspired them or someone in their family to learn to play an instrument.

The (SAIE) also offers experienced musicians a chance to perform a song in the acoustic stage area beside the instruments exhibit. Over the years the (SAIE) has become a Celtic music lovers hang out. It is not uncommon for folks to pull up a chair and stay at the SAIE for a couple of hours. The SAIE is the perfect exhibit for a day of fun for people of all ages.
