8TH ANNUAL CHET ATKINS TRIBUTE SHOW

Postby JohnHaring » Tue Jun 25, 2013 3:13 pm

NASHVILLE, TN - The popular Pre-Show for the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society (CAAS) Convention is undergoing some changes. Don’t worry, though. It will still be on the Tuesday night before the CAAS Convention (this year it’s on Tuesday, July 9th) and there will still be a lineup of outstanding, world-class guitarists, some of which you’ve seen on past shows (like John Knowles, CGP). So, all of the things that made it great in the past are still there. Now here’s the changes:

Artisan Guitars, who has presented an outstanding show for seven great years, has turned over the reins to us at The Guitar Show with Andy Ellis radio show. The Guitar Show has featured interviews with great guitarists from all over the world, including many of the CAAS performers and ALL of the CGP’s (except, unfortunately, Jerry Reed). We’re proud to have done the last interview with Paul Yandell before he passed and our Tribute to Chet Atkins show has gotten rave reviews (go to http://www.theguitarshow.com/interview- ... ibute.html to check it out). In addition, we have tremendous experience in live show production. We’ve promised to do Artisan Guitars proud in our execution of this year’s show. The Guitar Show is hosted by world-renowned guitar journalist Andy Ellis (currently Senior Editor at Premier Guitar magazine) and is executive produced by John Haring of Random Music Group in Nashville. John has many years of experience in artist relations and presenting live shows.

We’re also changing the location. This year’s show will be at 3rd and Lindsley, a popular music venue in downtown Nashville that will be much easier to get to than the previous venue in Franklin. 3rd and Lindsley holds approximately 500 people and has a full menu and bar service as well as a state-of-the-art stage and sound system and is a favorite for touring guitarists.

Unlike previous shows, this show will benefit The Inspire America Foundation’s “Keep the Music Alive” project providing musical instruments to underprivileged children so, you’ll not only get a great show, but your ticket price will go to a very good cause.

TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AT http://www.theguitarshow.com/caas where you can also join our mailing list to be kept informed about all of our great shows. You can also follow us on Twitter (@theguitarshow) or on Facebook. We hope to see you there!

This year's lineup includes:
JOHN KNOWLES, CGP
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer NOKIE EDWARDS
MURIEL ANDERSON
THOM BRESH
RICHARD SMITH
BEN HALL
SEAN WEAVER
BROOKS ROBERTSON
KYLE OFFIDANI
and some very special guests to be announced soon!!!

Tickets are available NOW for $20.00 for General Admission and
$35.00 for Limited VIP Seating
ALL PROCEEDS AFTER EXPENSES GO TO THE CHARITY
