Welcome to GuitartownCT in Hamden, Connecticut,
presenting the best in acoustic music...

...with generous support from Neighborhood Music School of New Haven, a vibrant arts community, teaching over 2,500 students annually in classical, jazz, and roots music, and dance.



Jesse Winchester, the Louisiana born singer/songwriter, died at his home in Charlottesville, VA, on April 11. He was a true Southern gentleman. His songs were gems, with lyrics that were as powerful and emotional as they were simple. A playful entertainer with a honey voice, he played at GuitartownCT back in September, 2008. His songs were recorded by Jimmy Buffett, Wilson Pickett, Emmylou Haris, Reba McEntire, Jonathan Edwards, Wynonna Judd, George Strait, The Everly Brothers, Patti Page, Joan Baez, and many others.
Jesse, we will miss you.
