I only posted a quick mention of this before, and you would have been reminded when checking Toubab Krewe’s early 2006 tour dates, but it still deserved it’s own reminder…

The New York Guitar Festival, a whole lot of guitar love and definitely any guitarists dream, begins today. Get on out there and support this and tell me how it went.
