Delivering exceptional service is our singular focus.
Our owner, Richard Allen, is a graduate of North Bennett Street School of Violin Making in Boston. After graduation, Richard spent years refining his craft in some of the country’s largest violin shops – from Massachusetts to Michigan to Washington state, then the Washington, D.C area.
Evergreen Workshop was established in 2013 and quickly became a prominent online source for stringed musical products. In the fall of 2016 Evergreen Workshop moved to our current location (and Richard’s childhood home) near City Center in Newport News, VA. Our new facility, with expanded workshop, warehouse, and showroom space, will allow us to better serve the musical community with a focus on instrument rentals and instrument sales for beginning to advanced musicians.
Our expanded staff bring decades of experience making and restoring instruments, and selling products specific to the stringed instrument musician.
