Keith Taylor

Third place in the 2011 International Finger Style Guitar Championship went to 59-year old ERP Implementation Consultant from Salt lake City, UT, Keith Taylor. He says he wants to be a guitarist when he grows up and he’s grown up because he sounded pretty good. He has been playing the guitar for 51 or 52 years or so, but who’s counting. Keith entered and won this Championship in its inaugural year, 2004. His favorite thing to do at the Festival is to eat homemade ice cream and most people would agree with him. When not playing guitar Keith’s favorite hobby is fishing and his dogs. For his efforts he takes home the 3rd Place Trophy and a Larrivee 000-60 Custom Guitar by Jean Larrivee Guitars of Oxnard, CA.
