The James Burton International Guitar Festival was created to help raise funds for the James Burton Foundation. The Foundation is dedicated to raising money to provide technical training, music lessons and free guitars to young musicians.
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.
Over the years, James and his wife Louise have donated countless guitars to kids in need of an instrument. Yesterday, another 1400 brand new guitars were delivered at the office of the James Burton Foundation. 1400 more children will get a guitar and learn to play... That's the man James really is.
