Ravenswood Guitar Collection

Ravenswood Guitar Collection is an effort by Ravenswood proprietor Paul Reid, and guitarist David Barrett, to collect and distribute donated guitars to youth in Northern Indigenous communities that have no access to musical instruments. We have partnered with ArtsCan Circle, a registered charity dedicated to linking artists with Indigenous youth at risk in Canada. Your donated musical instrument will be sent directly to youth in isolated and remote Canadian communities where they will be appreciated and utilized. Please check out our new page, thanks!
