Brian: Well it is definitely true that only a small fraction of that 8000 are active. And a lot of them seem to be spammers.

Surf guitar at NW Acoustic Guitar Contest & Concert Sept. 27

Submitted by Squid on September 17, 2014.
Show Announcements

The FIRST annual Northwest Acoustic Guitar Contest & Concert will be on Sat. Sept 27, 2014 in Vancouver, Washington (Portland, Oregon metro area). It will be at Shorty's Garden Center, 10006 SE Mill Plain Blvd. 

The first part of the contest is singer-guitarist (noon-2:25pm), so we'll skip to the second part which is acoustic fingerstyle. Six competing guitarists will each perform solo for ten minutes.

At 3:30 this contest will be followed by an acoustic surf guitar performance by Conrad of the Insanitizers surf guitar band. This will also be solo for ten minutes. Conrad intends to demonstrate the attractiveness of flatpicked instrumental guitar music as a category for future contests and concerts.

Attendance from noon to 4pm is entirely free. The music is suitable for all ages.

The Concert part will start at 6pm with a reprise by the winners of the two contests. From 6:45-7:30pm singer-guitarist Scott Gallegos will perform. He will be followed by two acoustic fingerstyle guitarists who do not sing, including national award winner John Standefer.

Here is the detailed schedule (.pdf).
