For three days in late June, Montreal becomes a "six-string nirvana" (JazzTimes Magazine), for guitar lovers, connoisseurs and collectors, featuring stunning acoustic, classical, archtop, and gypsy guitars which guitar lovers can admire, test-drive, and purchase. The craftsmanship and detail on each piece is a work of art -- simply exquisite.
The 2008 edition of The Montreal Guitar Show will feature over one hundred of the world's most renowned luthiers and guitar makers including:
Manzer Guitars - who has created made-to-order pieces for the likes of Pat Metheny, Bruce Cockburn and Carlos Santana
Renaissance Guitars - Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham (owns over 20!), John Mayer, Van Morrison, David Crosby, Robbie Krieger (The Doors), Jack Casady (Jefferson Airplane), Phil Lesh, Jerry Garcia and John Paul Jones
William Laskin Guitars - k.d. lang, Ottmar Liebert, Tom Chapin, and Tom Cochrane
Greenfield Guitars - Keith Richards, Pat Martino, Charlie Hunter
Concerts, workshops, sound-proof studios, and activities to engage every six-string fan are also activities of the Guitar Show and will take place at the elegant Hyatt Regency Montreal, right in the heart of this great, cosmopolitan city.
The Montreal Guitar Show also takes place during the first weekend of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal, "Montréal's answer to Mardi Gras and the highlight of the summer" - New York Times.
This year the Jazz Festival, the world's largest musical event, celebrates its 29th anniversary with over 3,000 musicians from 30 countries performing in 500 concerts over 10 days. From jazz to soul to blues, rock to traditional music, electro and folk, the Festival truly has something for all music lovers young and old.
Montreal Guitar Festival attendees will get the best of both worlds and can enjoy both world-class events.
