Students Live And Breathe Guitar At The Crown Guitar Festival
When you talk with the artists, guitar instructors, and organizers of the Crown Guitar Festival in Bigfork, Mont., there’s one subject that comes up again and again: the maturity and skill of the young scholarship students who travel from across the country to learn from the greats.
For five years, the Crown of the Continent Guitar Foundation has held a week-long guitar workshop and concert-series at Flathead Lake Lodge.
Every year the non-profit organization also awards dozens of scholarships for young and gifted guitar students. Josh Achiron, Solomon Hicks, and Emily Elbert joined 26 other current and former scholarship students for live performances and impromptu jam sessions. Every single one of them lives and breathes guitar.
