Just when you think things couldn’t get more awesome, we slide into the room on our knees while ripping a face melting tapping solo on our custom double necked Ibanez JEM. I do mean this metaphorically of course, since my knees could never handle such pure unadulterated rocking, but what I am really trying to say is that we have recently announced the line up for the second annual Sleepwalk Guitar Festival! This year’s lineup is a continuation of some of the themes (such as, um, guitar) presented at last year’s three-day guitar extravaganza, while at the same time expanding our minds & ears with the culmination of some of the world’s finest pickers. We are proud and humbled to present a collection of what can only be described as masters. James Burton, Albert Lee, Junior Brown, Cindy Cashdollar, Colin Linden, Nels Cline (Wilco), Paul Pigat, Kevin Breit, and many more. Holy crap. This list pretty much tops curator Luke Doucet‘s dream list when we first conceived the festival a couple of years ago, and here it is, coming to fruition. Take the time to read Luke’s exuberant welcome message here to learn more about these fantastic players. After reading Luke’s welcome message, I personally took the time to do a google image search for “Luke Doucet guitar face”, which was also quite rewarding.

Sleepwalk Guitar Festival is an event to be enjoyed by all music lovers (you don’t have to be a guitar player to enjoy the mind-blowing musicianship that is going to happen on the stage at the Great Hall in Toronto on the weekend of Nov 2-4). Concerts, collaborative workshops, and interviews await you.
