Two icons of guitar and philanthropy meet for a good cause.
On Saturday July 18th, a very special night, Muriel Anderson presented an award and a check to James Burton for the James Burton Foundation on behalf of the Music for Life Alliance.
The James Burton Foundation is dedicated to raising money to provide technical training, music lessons and free guitars to young musicians.
The James Burton International Guitar Festival was created to help raise funds for the James Burton Foundation.
James was fortunate that his parents sacrificed to purchase his first Fender guitar. Through his humble beginnings, James learned that a quality instrument is very important. It’s been James’ dream to give back to the community by helping young musicians realize their potential. Your participation in the James Burton International Guitar Festival and donation to the James Burton Foundation enables future generations of musicians to keep the music alive!
