David Barrett - Ravenswood 2016 Guitar Summitt

Posted by

If you haven't attended the  Ravenswood Guitar Summitt hosted by David Barrett you should!  The Summitt is a weekend filled with guitar, tone, instruction and gourmet food and fine wine!

This year the Summitt will be held starting Friday, January 29, 2016 at Ravenswood near  Bobcaygeon, Ontario.  Here's the description from Dave's website.

The weekend will commence with a get together BBQ dinner, followed by a mini concert featuring guitar soundscapes created using a Pigtronix Infinity Looper, and two Akai reel to reel tape machines. Wine tasting will follow, featuring a selection of old world wines, which includes all-you-can-talk-about guitars; a listening session in “The Vinyl Room, and a jam session in “The Steel Guitar Garage” finish the evening.

Saturday includes a hearty breakfast, a morning workshop all about acoustic guitars. One more guitar workshop in the afternoon; featuring our special guest TBA. The afternoon wraps up with hors d’oeuvres created by Executive Chef Sacha Douglas, followed later with a gourmet sit-down dinner. Saturday also features a private house concert with David Barrett Trio! An acoustic midnight jam in the kitchen follows.

Sunday starts with a deluxe baked oatmeal, specialty of David Barrett himself. Ravenswood proprietor Paul Reid will be your walking tour guide through the forest roads of Ravenswood – bring your camera!

This is an intimate gathering of up to 12 guests, and is meant for all levels of guitar player. The weekend will be an informal get away with much to learn from David. The food is always spectacular! The accommodations are shared, generally two to a room.

Price for the entire weekend is $599 and includes accommodation, food, beverages and workshops. For further information you may call Paul Reid at 416-520-7343 or email paul@hothousecreative.com
