Songbirds Guitar Museum, located on the campus of the Chattanooga Choo Choo, houses the world’s largest private collection of rare, vintage guitars. The exhibit is set to feature guitars and memorabilia celebrating artists such as Joan Jett, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Wanda Jackson, Carol Kaye, Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow, and many more. The exhibit documents the women and the instruments that shaped music for generations.
In conjunction with the unveiling, Songbirds will be working with the Chattanooga non-profit “Chattanooga Girls Rock” to celebrate the girls who will soon rule the music industry.
Throughout the weekend, the museum will be giving away prizes provided by Fender Musical Instrument Company as well as Gibson Guitar Corp. Additional prizes to be given away include: Songbirds T-Shirts (10), Songbirds membership (2), Songbirds concert tickets to select shows (3 pairs). Guests may enter at the front desk upstairs at Songbirds and must be present to win. The museum will be open from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. and admission tickets may be purchased in advance at www.songbirds.rocks or in person at the museum.
Songbirds will celebrate its new exhibit unveiling with a summer-long celebration of the women in music along with major celebrity acts such as Ana Popovic on Oct. 10.
