The James Burton Guitar Festival 2014 will be held in Shreveport, Louisiana from August 21-23. It will celebrate James' 75th birthday and the James Burton Foundation is raising money for the “James Burton Guitar & Car Museum”. All net profit from the Festival will go to build the Museum that will give children a free venue to showcase their music on stage for rehearsals and performances when the Museum is completed. It will also be a meeting place for Elvis fans when they are in Shreveport, Louisiana. The August 2014 Festival will consist of “Special Events” for Elvis Fans. Each Elvis fan group will have their own hostess to make sure they do not miss any events and that they have lots of fun. They will also be competing the Guinness Book of World Records with the most guitar players playing the same song “Love Me Tender” at the same time.
