The James Burton International Guitar Festival was created to raise money for the James Burton Foundation. The foundation is dedicated to providing music scholarships and instruments to children as well as young adults. James was fortunate that his parents sacrificed to purchase his first Fender guitar. Through his humble beginnings, he learned that a quality professional instrument is very important. It has been James’ dream to give back to the music community by helping young musicians realize their potential. Your participation in the James Burton International Guitar Festival and Trade Show enables future generations of musicians to keep the music alive.
