'The Old Guitar' Video Project Pairs Indie Artists with $75 Kay
Sometimes all you need is a crappy guitar.
Two friends from Connecticut, Connor Millican and Corey Pain, have launched an endearing new video project that pairs some of America's brightest new singer/songwriters with a 1960s Kay guitar that the couple purchased on Craigslist.
Dubbed "The Old Guitar," the idea behind the project is to pass the Kay to different musicians and film them singing a song with it.
"It's kind of like old folk music or bluegrass or blues music: families sitting around the living room, gathered around a single instrument, passing around a song," Millican told The New York Times.
The Kay is no prize, and was purchased for $75, yet it exudes character.
So far, the artists who've cut clips for the project include Chad Stokes, Scott McMicken, River City Extension, Ian Fitzgerald, and Hannah Fair, whose effort is featured in the video above.
