Flipside Memphis – Xanadu

| April 12, 2010 | 0 Comments

Located in Midtown, John and Beverly Lowe’s Xanadu Music and Books always has a hand-picked selection of rarities for sale. But Lowe’s other product is what sets the store apart from others in its niche. The Lowebow is a mutant, handmade musical instrument based on the classic cigar box guitar. Designed originally for one-man bands and named after the one-stringed “diddly bow” popular with the original Delta Blues players, the Lowebow allows musicians to play both bass and slide guitar parts at the same time. Since perfecting the design in 2000, Lowe has put the unique instruments into the hands of musicians such as the North Mississippi Allstars, as well as selling them at his own concerts.
