About Village Music at Lynwood Center
In September of 2003 Village Music opened its doors to the public in the historical Lynwood Center on Bainbridge Island. It started as a show place for the custom instruments built by the owner, Alan Simcoe, and a string shop, specializing in classical guitars, their repair and teaching. The store quickly outgrew its space.
In 2006 Village Music was able to move into a larger space in the Lynwood Center building. With the new space, Village Music expanded to include a full hand percussion section, a larger violin and cello section and larger selection of guitars and even ukuleles and jazz hats. The move also allowed for an on site workshop for Alan to build his instruments and offer guitar and ukulele building classes.
Alan can be seen in the workshop by passersby as they come and go from the music store, line up to catch a film at the Lynwood Theater, or patronize the Pane Amore bakery or the Treehouse Cafe. It's all part of the old world charm of the Island's south end village. For Village Music Alan chooses instruments based on their sound, reliability, and then price point. Village Music is run by Alan Simcoe and his wife, Debby. Their daughters, Alaina Toadpipe and Marissa Simcoe, occasionally help with the sales and office. You may often see the grandsons Rowan and Reed testing all new instruments for quality or up at grandpa's workbench honing skills in sawing, hammering and painting.
Alan Simcoe, was selected "Island Treasure" by the Bainbridge Island Arts & Humanities Council for 2009.
