WINNIPEG – If you’ve ever wanted to try playing the electric guitar, you can get the help of a professional Thursday night.

Award-winning Russian guitarist Igor Kornilov will showcase his handmade guitars at the Garrick Hotel in Winnipeg starting at 7:00 p.m.

He will then perform with his wife Larisa Segida and help anyone who wants to try out the guitars.

“We have a band it’s called MW for Moscow Winnipeg because we were born in Moscow but as a band we were born in Winnipeg,” Segida said.

Kornilov has made more than 300 instruments since moving to Winnipeg back in 2003.

The event Thursday aims to provide a hands on musical experience for Manitobans.

The couple also runs a workshop at Accord Music Instruments on Pembina Highway where you can sample the guitars.
