Overview

History of Electric Guitar
G.E. Smith performs the history of the electric guitar, from steel to squeal, in just one song!  (5 minutes 16 seconds)
From the Smithsonian Channel program ELECTRIFIED:THE GUITAR REVOLUTION

Badi
Directed by Edu Felistoque, 85 min, 2017, Portuguese with English Subtitles

The documentary Badi observes the personal trajectory and the international career of singer, guitarist, and composer Badi Assad. From classical to pop, the film follows Badi and her guitar as they move through the global music scene, facing challenges and her own creative boundaries, with lightness – including the pressures of belonging to a family of virtuoso musicians. Guest appearances by the Assad brothers, Larry Coryell, Toquinho, Naná Vasconcelos, Seu Jorge, and other great names of Brazilian and International music.

 

Celebrating the artistry of the guitar with some of the music world’s finest talents, Guild Hall introduces the first annual Guitar Masters festival. This three-day gathering is a celebration of music, summer, and exceptional musicianship, and features concerts, documentary films, and book signings.

The festival will take place from Thursday, July 5 through Saturday, July 7 and features performances by Andy Summers, Ralph Gibson, G.E. Smith, Richard Thompson, Teddy Thompson, David Broza, Badi Assad, and Brandon Ross; documentary films curated by director Mary Jane Marcasiano; a talk by Ken Parker, and book signing with Galadrielle Allman.

All Access Passes

All access passes for the full festival are $1,000 and include VIP seating and access to the catered VIP Lounge to all programs July 5-7, a launch party at a private home with a renowned guitarist, and entry to win a limited-edition Fender G.E. Smith Telecaster Guitar.
