THE TALE OF THE TRAVELLING GUITAR: CALGARY MUSICIANS TACKLE SONGWRITING CHALLENGE

Five Alberta musicians will share one guitar over the coming weeks as they take part in a unique songwriting challenge.

Five Alberta musicians will share one guitar over the coming weeks as they take part in a unique songwriting challenge.

The Acoustic Guitar Project, started by New York musician David Adams in 2012, is governed by a simple concept.

First, a city is chosen, along with five local musicians. Then, a single guitar is sent to them. Each musician has one week with the guitar to write a song, before passing it onto the next musician.

Calgary musician Joni Delaurier is the latest to receive the Calgary guitar, speckled with the signatures of those who used it before her.

She’s already written the chorus, which she likes, but says is “so sad.” After she finishes her song, she will add her signature to the mosaic.
