EVANSVILLE, IN (10/3/13) – The sound of over 300 guitar and stringed instrument players performing in unison rang out across Evansville, Indiana’s West Franklin Street area this past Saturday, September 28th.
The event, which was aptly entitled “Every Chord Counts,” was the area’s first annual attempt at breaking the Guinness World Record for “largest guitar ensemble” in history.
While Poland's lofty record of over 6,000 players remains unbroken, as does the US record, the fun-loving crowd of musicians that showed up and played at the gathering helped to set a new guitar ensemble record for the state of Indiana.
And thanks to the affair’s host/organizer, Amy Word, as well as members of the acclaimed Boscoe France Band, Calabash, and Andrea Wirth, the event was a great time for all that attended.
We can’t wait to check it out again next year.
