Our fundraising continues into 2018. Our current guitar has been signed by Jim Byrnes & Colin James. Kenny ‘Blues Boss’ Wayne will be signing as well. It will be autographed this summer by the artists at the Mount Baker R&B Festival (Sonny Landreth, Ana Popovic, Victor Wainwright, Anthony Gomes, Daniel Castro, Albert Castiglia, Michelle Taylor), and a few others we’ll be announcing later. One is a huge blues guy – keeping our fingers crossed for that one.
Funds raised from this guitar will be going toward the artists going to Memphis, TN in January 2019 to represent our Blues Society in the 35th International Blues Challenge.
Beautiful Cigar Box Guitar from Bereti Designs
Thanks to the generous support of Randy Bereti, we have another beautiful Cigar Box Guitar being raffled to raise funds for our BC Musicians going to Memphis, TN in Jan. 2019. This guitar doesn’t just look good, it plays very sweet, as well. Even if you aren’t a player, this little baby would look awesome as a conversation piece or a gift for a musician. The photos don’t do it justice! If interesting in a ticket and you can’t attend, send us an email.
To help us with our fundraising efforts, Long & McQuade kindly gifts us these beautiful guitars which are autographed by all of our performing musicians and other acts we see live, including all the festival artists.
Our January 2018 Winner:
