David Barrett Guitar Summit 2018

David Barrett Guitar Summit at Chalet Studio 2018

We are into our 6th year with the David Barrett Guitar Summit and we’ve made some big changes! This year we are conducting the DBGS at Chalet Studios in Claremont, On. We’ve got some great things planned:

We’ll be conducting recording workshops in the studio, where you can listen to DB3 multi-tracks,  record guitars, and even lay down a vocal track. The studio will also be used for live performances, and a Q&A featuring this years special guest Michael Sadler (Saga). Pieter Van Oudenaren, our Cheese Expert is back, so is BBQ Specialist Stephen Barrett. Standard DBGS features like The Vinyl Room, and The Kitchen Jam will be on, and new amenities like the Chalet Sauna will be available.
