Once again, I have the honour of hosting the Guitar Summit – now in our 5th Year!!! We continue to offer a great day for acoustic music fans and guitar enthusiasts. For this year’s evening concert, the performers will be playing tunes that represent the artists they are admire, emulate and are influenced by the most. (eg Doc Watson, Martin Simpson, Michael Hedges, Chet Atkins, John Renbourne for starters) and…the workshops!! Titles are still to come but, as in the past, they are interactive. You can expect to walk away with lots of pointers to make you a better player. Don’t forget to bring your guitar… you’re going to need it!

Workshops will be announced as they come in. Some topics for now are:

Altered tunings, DADGAD, CGCGCD, CGDGBD.
Buying your next guitar… what to look for: tone woods, body styles, specific makers.
Confirmed Sponsors thus far are:
