Cracker the Box is an extremely accomplished North Florida blues/folk singing/songwriting duo that plays original tunes with a variety of instruments, including homemade cigar box guitars. The duo consists of Glenn "Hamhock" Moody and Don Blitch.

North Central Florida music fans may know Glenn from his days as one half of the blues duo Hamhock and Slide, and Don is well known in folk music world for his longtime collaboration with Jim Carrick, including playing with beloved Florida folk musician Gamble Rogers "back in the day," and at the Gamble Rogers Folk Festival.

Don and Glenn have known each other and have been pickin' together for more than 20 years. Always sharing a love for traditional music, they have both been influenced by the blues, folk, bluegrass and many other styles of music.

Fascinated with the Cigarbox Guitar and the late 19th and early 20th century culture it came from, the guys have joined the ranks of a burgeoning revival for this endearing instrument.
