The James Burton Foundation was pleased to provide some recording time to Cope Middle School students this week.
It was great fun and was inspiring to all involved. Thanks for supporting the foundation!

In lieu of flowers, the family has graciously asked that contributions be made to The James Burton Foundation (donating guitars to enable young musicians to get their start).

Burton formed the James Burton International Guitar Festival.

James wanted to send out a BIG ‘thank you’ to his friend, Robert Plant for his kindness to The James Burton Foundation and the cause for the kids. The Robert Plant show in March was phenomenal!
His generous meet and greet to benefit the James Burton Foundation was unforgettable and everyone walked away saying what a wonderful experience they had.
All noted how down-to-earth and kind Robert is, trying not to leave any person in the room left out.
That shows what a considerate artist he is and why James is honored to call him friend.
Also, a very special thank you to his wonderful band and staff.
This was a GREAT experience for us all.
Thanks for supporting the James Burton Foundation!

2016 looks even better. Plans are to start on the ‘James Burton Guitar and Car Museum.’
Ultimately, it will be place like no other, with unique guitars, automobiles and many other one-of-a-kind items.
Also, there will even be a venue for kids to be able to perform and showcase their talents.
