Cardinal Ribbon Cutting

By LaBetha Casey

Stonewall welcomed a new business July 5, 2022, at the ribbon cutting of Cardinal Music Company.  Steve and Paula Wilkinson and their two sons, Landry and Cardis, are the family owners.

Music has been a part of their family for a number of years.  More than a dozen years ago, Steve and his sons started a musical band named Landry and Company.  At the time, Landry was only 12 years of age and bass player, Cardis, was only 7.  They have played for a number of venues since.

Steve shared that the origin of their store name is a tribute to a number of musicians and their family members, especially Paula’s brother, Randy Lambert, who were lost to death in recent years.  Cardinals represent deceased loved ones, who are watching over you, according to superstition.

The store offers a selection of drums, guitars and accessories such as guitar strings and picks.  Landry is their tech person who installs sound systems.  Paula was sporting some cardinal earrings that she made.  After having brain surgery, she began making jewelry as therapy, so a selection of her hand-made jewelry is also for sale.

Well-wishers had the opportunity to submit an entry for an acoustic guitar pack.  The lucky door prize winner for the noon drawing was Caleb Robison of Gloster.
