Christopher Nogy, of Northwest Arkansas, known in the society as Master Kazimierz Samostrelov, OL, of the Shire March of Grimfells, Calontir, has been asked to speak at Yale this coming Tuesday 24 February, 2015 on his passion for making period musical instruments.

As Master Kaz explained recently: “In October of last year, a gentleman  contacted me regarding an interview about my instruments and my little cottage industry. Little did I know what it would become…This series, “The Amateur Hour”, focuses on folks without formal training who have a passion and understanding of unusual things and allow those things to take over their lives. SCA, anyone? ”

More information on the visit can be found on Amateur Hour’s website.
