These incredible musicians will be playing the timeless hits of: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers Band, Van Halen, Black Sabbath, Joe Walsh, Santana, Deep Purple and beyond!
There will also be a special appearance by The BTG Youth Choir backed by the Berkshire Music School Kids Rock Ensemble.
BTG Program and Rentals Manager (Rev) Tor Krautter says, "As a guitar player, I am really looking forward to this event. My first experience performing on the Colonial stage was at the 2009 Guitar Jam competition organized by the late Derrick Gentile and The Berkshire Eagle. I loved the comradery between the players, and the chance to jam with some of the county's most renowned pickers. That Guitar Jam was a major influence in the creation of the Berkshire Mountain Guitar Summit. While more of a showcase than a contest, the spirit is the same: a little bit of healthy competition, a whole lot of on-stage comradery and tons of really fun guitar driven songs."
Refreshments and snacks will be available at The Garage bar.
