David Barrett Guitar Summit 2019

David Barrett Guitar Summit at Chalet Studio 2019

We are into our 7th year with the David Barrett Guitar Summit and we are back at Chalet Studios in Claremont, On. We’ve got some great things planned:

We’ll be conducting recording workshops in the studio, where we’ll all record guitars, and even lay down some vocal tracks. The studio will also be used for live performances, and a Q&A with special guest Kenny Lee Lewis from The Steve Miller Band! 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!
