KSLA News 12 Editorial: August 13- James Burton Guitar Festival

One of the best-known guitar players in the country lives right here in Shreveport, and once again James Burton is holding his International Guitar Festival.

Thousands of visitors from throughout the country will come to the ArkLaTex to hear Burton play along other well-known rock and roll and country artists.

But as much fun as this will be, it's also for a good cause.  Money raised from the festival goes to the James Burton Foundation.  The nonprofit organization provides guitars and lessons to school children. This year also marks Burton's 75th birthday.  KSLA News 12 is proud to be a sponsor.  I'm James Smith.
