” The Crown of the Continent Guitar Foundation is a non-profit organization that celebrates and promotes the artistry of the guitar across all genres. It draws its inspiration from the unique ecosystem and natural beauty of the Crown of the Continent region with headwaters to three oceans and critical habitat for grizzly bears, wolves,and many other endangered species.
The Foundation aims to bring together the magnificence of the Crown of the Continent with the universal language of guitar music. The Foundation will hold its seventh annual weeklong guitar festival and workshop at The Flathead Lake Lodge starting August 28th through September 4th, 2016.
The workshop week is for all guitarists from beginner to professional level, filled with personalized learning time with the instructors, jam time with fellow musicians and time to share your passion for guitars and guitar music. It’s an opportunity to develop the participant’s guitar playing in a non-competitive, supportive environment where the focus is on each individual’s interests and personal goals.
The festival includes public performances by world class guitarists of all genres; lectures, master classes and opportunity for private lessons for both the serious and casual student; the composition and performance of original music; and an opportunity for artistic and personal interaction between individuals with a passion for the guitar. All events are held in the family-friendly accommodations of the four-star Flathead Lake Lodge. The intimate setting provides a unique opportunity for camaraderie and interaction among all participants, faculty and artists in residence. On the grounds, the Crown Festival Tent hosts the evening concerts where weekly audiences of 5000+ can enjoy spectacular, world-class, sold-out performances. ”
