La Plata County is far from a metropolitan mecca
of music and entertainment. However, Durango is
graced with several world-class music stores. From
handcrafted mandolins and guitars to every dreamer's
drum set, there is always a smiling face behind
the counter to lend a helping hand to both the seasoned
veteran and the rhythm-less beginner. With
sales, support and education available at a variety of
stores, there is no excuse to put off the New Year's
resolution of picking up a new instrument and
revealing your inner rock star.
