New YorkA crystal-studded zither by Dolly Parton, a guitar by Taylor Swift, an accordion by Sheryl Crow: numerous instruments by US stars have been auctioned off at a benefit auction in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
The most expensive piece was a guitar made by Taylor Swift in 2018, which brought in 40,000 dollars (about 34,000 euros), said Christie’s auction house in New York.
The Parton zither fetched $ 37,500 after the country icon had owned the four-string musical instrument for around 30 years. Singer Crow’s accordion raised nearly $ 5,000.
In addition, instruments by Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw and Keith Urban were auctioned. The total proceeds: just under $ 140,000.
