Sharon Lynn Wilson Center for the Arts - Guitar Competition2020

I have had the pleasure to serve as one of three finals judges for the rock guitar in the annual Wilson Center for the Arts Guitar Festival and Competition for the last four years running. And while it's true that competition is a bit at odds with art, still, I find that this weekend of immersion and the sharing, across a huge stylistic range including classical, jazz, blues, fingerstyle and rock, is a great benefit to all who attend. Plus, there is $40,000 of prize money given away! If you love guitar, this is a great event that you shouldn't miss!

For more info go to the Wilson Center Guitar Competition page. The dates for the 2020 Guitar Festival have just been announced to be Thursday, August 13th through Saturday, August 15th.

The first round is entered by online video submission. Hey, what's the worst that could happen? You spend time perfecting your video entry and improve as a result of your focused efforts. Think about it.

Hope to see you there!
