The Tragically Hip Autograph Guitar for Charity Auction

Original Article from Kingston Herald

This week only, an acoustic Yamaha guitar signed by members of Kingston’s The Tragically Hip is being auctioned off to raise money for the “War Child” organization.

The band played a series of shows over the Canada Day weekend, including a sold out fan club show at the Jackson Triggs Estate Winery, and massive festivals in Niagara-On-The-Lake (pictured) and at Burl’s Creek. During that run of shows, The Hip signed the guitar for War Child which is now open for bidding on eBay.

The Tragically Hip – often referred to as “The Hip” – was formed in Kingston in 1983 and features Gordon Downie on lead vocals and guitar, Rob Baker and Paul Langlois on guitar, Gord Sinclair on bass, and Johnny Fay on drums.

Since the group began creating music together, they have released 12 studio albums, 2 live albums, and 46 singles. The Hip have received numerous Canadian Music awards, including 14 Juno Awards. A new studio album is set to go on sale in the fall of 2012, and features the recently released single “At Transformation”.

War Child Canada was established in 1999 and is an internationally recognized, award-winning charity known for its outstanding global programming and global reach. It works with children in some of the most devastated regions of the world to reduce the effects of poverty, provide an education and to defend and promote child rights.
