October 5, 2006--Gibson Guitar, the world’s premiere musical instrument maker, recently supported legendary artist, Vince Gill and his trip to New Orleans by donating guitars from the Gibson-Baldwin Music Education division. Vince traveled to New Orleans to help build a much needed playground at the International School of Louisiana. The help came in partnership with the Academy of Country Music and Home Depot, along with Gibson Guitar.
While there, Vince surprised the children by giving them five GBME Les Paul Junior and Flying V guitars. The guitars are some of the first instruments in their new music classroom. ISL's new music teacher, Luis Murcia said, "This is just wonderful. The kids are so excited. Thank you, Vince and Gibson."
