Since 2012 Guitar Mash has presented Urban Campfires, live, participatory music events that allow audiences to perform along with renowned guitarists and singer-songwriters. Each Urban Campfire is a unique and immersive event that does away with lines between artist and audience, engendering a true collaborative community.

Announced for Sunday afternoon November 17th, 2019, the NYC Urban Campfire will feature audience members singing and playing along with legends such as Dion and The Lovin’ Spoonful’s John Sebastian, and rising stars of today Amythyst Kiah, Tash Neal and Sammy Brue. There will be special appearances by Guitar Mash alums Jimmy Vivino and Scott Sharrard, as well as by Brandon “Taz” Niederauer joining the Guitar Mash teens. Guitars and musical training are not requirements – anyone and everyone are encouraged to join in the communal experience.

Artists will lead the songs that shaped them, sharing stories along the way. Songs will be projected for easy follow-along by the audience. They include:
“Set Fire To the Rain” – Adele
“No Rain” – Blind Melon
“You Never Can Tell” – Chuck Berry
“Space Oddity” – David Bowie

Doors: 12:15 pm
Show: 1:00 pm
