thank you

Crown of the Continent Guitar Foundation sends a BIG "Thank You!" to our Sponsors and Donors for their generous contributions and ongoing commitment to keeping the dream alive. Without your involvement our non-profit organization would not be able to aim high and help others reach their full potential.

  • Everyone from different parts of the festival are collaborating and having fun and letting their hair down and supporting each other.
    — Emily Elbert
  • No matter your genre, your skills will reach a new level in a supportive, personal atmosphere with superb instructors and amazing musicians.
    — Joe Bonamassa
  • I don’t think I’ve ever been more inspired in my life by music, than when I’m here.
    — Ian Velikoff
  • Crown is like a crazy old western place that is removed from reality in this beautiful way that basically lets you remember why you started playing guitar in the first place.
    — Josh Turner



The Crown Guitar Festival and Workshops throughout the year attract world-class artists, superlative teachers, eager students and enthusiastic audiences who appreciate the music of the guitar and the magical splendor of Montana.


“We have built the Crown Guitar Workshop and Festival into a one-of-a-kind, leading international guitar event.”

– David Feffer, COC Guitar Foundation Chairman and Founding Director



Donors and Sponsors make a huge impact in our local community with their support of the COC Guitar Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to celebrating all genres of guitar and preserving the wonders of Northwestern Montana.
