Critically-acclaimed TV show will focus on how Wallace is keeping Detroit’s history alive with handmade, limited edition guitars made from landmark buildings
Detroit, October 25, 2017— Wallace Detroit Guitars, manufacturer of handmade guitars created of wood from Detroit landmarks, announces that company founder Mark Wallace will be featured on the third season of INSP’s Handcrafted America. The episode will air on Friday, October 27th at 8:30 PM EST.
The segment also features soul/blues powerhouse Laith Al-Saadi playing on one of Wallace Detroit Guitars' instruments. Al-Saadi is widely known as having won a finale spot in NBC's "The Voice" in 2016, and he has since won over classic rock and blues fans around the world.
In every half-hour episode of Handcrafted America, Jill Wagner (Christmas in the Smokies, Teen Wolf, Wipeout) meets three gifted artisans and gets a behind-the-scenes look at how their products are created. Along the way, viewers learn about the history and cultural heritage that inspire and influence the design of their handcrafted products. Over the course of three seasons of Handcrafted America, the stories of more than 100 artisans will have been told.
Wallace and his company pay homage to their hometown of Detroit — a city known for rolling up its sleeves and working with its hands — by creating their instruments from the floorboards of the former Detroit Fire Department Headquarters, benches of The Brewster Wheeler Recreation Center and many other historically meaningful locations throughout the city. Handcrafted America focuses on American ingenuity and craftsmanship — making Wallace Detroit Guitars perfectly suited for the program.
“We are honored to be featured on Handcrafted America and to have our work highlighted alongside other talented artisans,” said Mark Wallace, founder of Wallace Detroit Guitars. “We hope this program will spotlight the craftsman spirit of Detroit, and how far we have come as a city of passionate creators and entrepreneurs.”
