The Guitar Mash Up Story

The Guitar Mash Up Story


In 2012, producer Rebecca Weller was introduced to Paul Simon’s long time guitarist Mark Stewart after he had led a parade of trombones down a street in the East Village. Weller and Stewart shared a passion for participatory-and the recognition of the portable, democratic guitar as the quickest catalyst for sharing stories and songs-which resulted in him leading the first Guitar Mash “campfire jam” in a NYC living room.  

The first signature Guitar Mash at City Winery NYC took place on November 11, 2012, and has expanded to include new cities and a vibrant teen program for communal playing and songwriting.This year the  8th Annual Guitar Mash was held Le Poisson Rouge. It was a sold out event.

The audience with their guitars were able to play along with some great guitarist such as Dion, John Sebastian, Abbie Gardner, Sammy Brue, Amythist Kiah, Tash Neal  and hosted by Mark Stewart.

One of the highlights of the afternoon was the performance of the Guitar Mash Teens.
