Calling Shane Speal a blues musician only describes 10% of his entire artistic output. Speal singlehandedly spearheaded a worldwide movement of cigar box guitar makers and players, reintroducing a long lost instrument into modern music. He writes his own music on instruments he crafted himself and performs live with his humorous Snake Oil Band, an electrified jug band with cigar box guitars, washtub basses and other homemade contraptions.
The core of Shane Speal’s work centers around
