The Folk Americana Roots Hall of Fame (FARHOF) announces a new exhibit featuring two dozen distinctive guitars from Ernie Boch Jr.’s personal collection. The Life In Six Strings exhibit will be on display inside the Boch Center Wang Theatre, includes electric and acoustic instruments, each with a notable history and impact on musicmaking across multiple decades and myriad genres.


With the help of artificial intelligence, a hologram of Ernie Boch, Jr. will personally share each guitar’s unique story. A virtual Ernie will answer guests’ questions about himself, the significance of the guitars in the annals of music and the relevance each holds as part of his extensive collection.

Tours of FARHOF and the Life In Six Strings exhibit open to the public on October 27th.

Tours are available at the Wang Theatre. Tickets are $20 for adults and $12 for children.
