I have been involved in folk music for 30 years. Hogeye used to be the 'go to' place in a 3 state area. Unfortunately, the store has been in decline for a while. The last time I was there, the stock had been completely depleted, and quite frankly, the gentleman working there didn't even greet us (the only customers) when we walked in. If you need something, call first to see if they have it. Hopefully, the economy will change and the old Hogeye that I knew and loved will make a comeback. (They need to hire someone else that's interested in helping customers, too. I was so off-put by the disinterest that I'm not sure I would have bought anything even if they had it!)

My wife and I have been going to Hogeye for decades.\n\nIf you are at all enhusiastic about acoustic music, entering the store will\nturn you into a kid in a candy shop. Instruments, books, recordings..\nEverything from Irish tin whistles to Resonator guitars; from baroque\nrecorders to banjos, and more...\n\nWhen my wife and I go to Hogeye, these days, it's usually because I\nneed some part for a banjo that I'm working on. But we seldom come\nhome with just that banjo part... We get a new CD, maybe a tin whistle...\nand we have to stop ourselves from buying more...\n\nIt's a wonderful place to go.\n\nBut, if you love acoustic music, and haven't been there, expect to stay\na while.\n\n
