The Acoustic Guitar Project - KELOWNA
The Acoustic Guitar Project is a global music platform and concert series that inspires musicians to write an original song and record it live in one week.
Kelowna is one of the newest cities to be selected to participate and your curator is Sandy McAfee. "To be selected as one of the cities in this global project is such a huge honor. The only challenge was deciding how to select from the plethora of amazing talent here." says Sandy. Fortunately this is an annual project and there will be more artists to see in the coming years.
This year's collection includes some great musical talent in a variety of styles. The show will give you a little taste of each of the performers including a "Concert ONLY" performer who will remain a mystery until that evening, you won't want to miss this.

Clicking on the picture will take you to the song that the songwriter wrote for the project.
Thanks to Michael Eger for his pictures (well at least the clear ones!) Sandy took the one that is a bit blurry..... oops
2018 Season's Concert
This year's Acoustic Guitar Project Concert was another fantastic evening and Benvoulin Church was the perfect intimate location. Next year's concert will be booked shortly and early reservations will be available to those who want wish to reserve their seats early.
One Guitar - a city and curator are chosen, five local musicians are selected and provided an acoustic guitar and a simple recorder.
One Week- each musician has one week to write an original song and record it live. No editing is allowed. Musicians also shoot a video describing their experience and/or song.
One Song - each musician signs the guitar and takes a picture with it. We upload their song, picture and video to the site. Then, the guitar is passed on to the next artist in that city.
Concert Series - When all five musicians have completed their songs, there is a concert. During the performance, each musician plays the song they wrote for the project and tells the story behind it.
