Latest Guitar Club News ...

Sad News in the Guitar World!

♫ I thought I should pass along this difficult news about Loren Barrigar, a fine guitar player from the Syracuse area whom many of you have heard in concert opening for Tommy Emmanuel and may remember doing a presentation for RGC a while back. He has suffered a serious hand injury, and some friends have set up a gofundme site to help him out through this difficult time.

Our hopes are with him right now.

Thanks, K. Nelson - RGC
