Welcome to the Miner Music web site!

I'm collector, recording artist and "armchair musicologist" Gregg Miner - proprietor of this site.
On it, you can visit my private museum of rare stringed instruments...

and also purchase recordings of music made with these instruments - many rarely, or never, heard before on CD!
This page will inform you of my latest updates.
