Paul Gilbert has announced details of his second annual Great Guitar Escape, which will take place July 8-12 at Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY. We were sent these details:
Paul says, "The Great Guitar Escape is built around world-class seminars, concerts and jam sessions. It's a chance to learn and be inspired by some truly amazing musicians. And it's just a great way for everyone to hang out together in a beautiful place. The Full Moon Resort makes a perfect location to soak up some serious guitar music."
Featured guest guitar instructors at Paul Gilbert's Great Guitar Escape include: Andy Timmons (Danger Danger, Simon Phillips, Paul Stanley of KISS, Olivia Newton-John, Paula Abdul), internationally renowned jazz guitarist/composer Mimi Fox (Stevie Wonder, Charlie Byrd, Diana Krall, Branford Marsalis, Joey DeFrancesco), Associate Professor at Berklee College of Music in Boston Scotty Johnson (Paul Gilbert, Robben Ford's Fords and Friends, The Ford Blues Band, The Blindside Blues Band), acclaimed rock/blues/slide guitarist Tony Spinner, and Adam Fulara who specializes in two-handed contrapuntal tapping.
Paul adds, "Every teacher at the camp has something unique to offer. I've had great, face-melting jams with Andy, Scotty and Tony in the past and they are three of my favorite guitarists. I've also been interested in Mimi and Adam for quite a while now, and I'm very excited to watch them play in person. Their abilities are off the map!"
Great Guitar Escape students will arrive at Full Moon Resort on Monday, July 8 for an orientation, meet and greet with the teachers, and concert with Paul's band. July 9, 10 and 11 will be filled with seminars and concerts with Paul and the other instructors, with informal jam sessions each night. Guests will enjoy breakfast together on July 12 before departing.
