Musician, author and music educator Victor Wooten is currently holding a very unique contest on his website www.victorwooten.com with a slew of prizes as provided by Hartke/Samson Technologies, Fodera Guitars, Bass Player magazine and more. The “Grand Prize” winner will receive a live performance by Victor Wooten in their personal home, along with the Samson PA and Hartke Combo used by Wooten in that performance, plus much more!
Wooten is most recognized for his contributions on bass guitar to Béla Fleck and the Flecktones. His solo efforts and his collaborations with folks such as Stanley Clarke, Bruce Hornsby, India Arie, and Dave Matthews have led him to be regarded as one of the greatest bass players of all time! Wooten is also an astute businessman; he owns and runs his own record label, VIX RECORDS, and owns and teaches at Victor Wooten’s Center for Music and Nature, a non-profit nature and music learning facility just outside of Nashville. His award-winning book The Music Lesson: A Spiritual Search for Growth Through Music is published in four languages. He is currently in the studio recording a follow-up CD to his highly-acclaimed 2008 solo effort Palmystery.
