The Bridge | Feb 21, 2013 | 10:46

A very special guitar is front and centre this weekend as the Windsor Symphony Orchestra presents the Pops concert Six String Nation.

Tomorrow night and continuing Saturday and Sunday the Windsor Symphony Orchestra is putting a guitar front and centre. Not just any guitar, it's the Voyager, a guitar more well known that the people who will have the pleasure of playing it during the concerts this weekend. About a dozen local guitar players have been tapped to take part in the concerts, I'm one of the lucky ones along with Jody Raffoul, Mike Hargraeves, John Drew, Karen Morand, Alec Summerville, Vic Bortolon and still a few more. Jowi Taylor is the fellow who came up with the idea of the Voyager guitar.
