“One guitar. One week. One song” is the tagline of the Acoustic Guitar Project, an international songwriting project that originated in New York City and has spread around the world. In each city, a guitar circulates from songwriter to songwriter, and each person has one week to write a song on that guitar and capture it on a handheld recorder.

Now, five Syracuse-area songwriters who participated in the project will appear together in a unique concert, where they will perform their new song (as well as other originals) on one night, on one stage.

The concert will be held on Friday, November 3, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. at May Memorial Unitarian Universalist Society, 3800 East Genesee Street, Syracuse, NY.

Projects are underway in more than 40 cities; from Buenos Aires to Boston, Havana to Hanoi, Minneapolis to Moscow, and São Paulo to Syracuse. The Syracuse project began in 2014, curated by Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers, with a guitar handmade by Minor Bird Instruments. To date, twenty five songwriters from Central New York have written songs on the Minor Bird.

The project was created to help musicians reconnect to the original moment that inspired them to be singer/songwriters. Each songwriter was challenged to create a brand new, original song in just one week, then hand the guitar to the next participant.

Like any good song — in the process of being written — there’s no way of knowing where this project will go. That’s for the music to decide. We can only sit back, listen and enjoy. Come and enjoy the results.
