James Burton Gives Away: It’s no secret that James Burton has his heart on the right place. Elvis’s former lead guitarist has just donated 600 guitars for a children’s musical project. James raised the money during the James Burton Guitar Festival in Shreveport, August 2005. The James Burton International Guitar Festival was created to help raise money for the James Burton Foundation. The foundation is dedicated to providing musical scholarships and instruments to children as well as young adults.
