Gargantuan Guitar Gatherings

In partnership for the third year, C. F. Martin & Co. (Martin Guitar) and Alfred Music invite guitarists everywhere to join an epic, nationwide Mass Appeal project on June 21.

Mass Appeal brings together thousands of musicians – of all levels and ages – to make music in large, single-instrument groups. Around the country, guitarists of all levels will gather to play six classic songs and make music together. Free songbooks will be distributed so that everyone can play along.

Our songbook this year pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, featuring Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock,” “Blue Moon” (performed at Woodstock by Sha Na Na), “I’m Coming Home” (performed at Woodstock by Ten Years After), and two more hits of the era, “She’s Not There” and “I Can See Clearly Now.” We close with “Singing In The Rain,” as many did on the rainy weekend of August 15, 1969 in Bethel, NY.
