Grant lived for – and loved – music. He loved the old masters and music on the fringe – he loved vinyl and Pandora. He loved busking on a sunny Chagrin Falls afternoon and more than anything, Grant loved people – whether tragically flawed or fabulous or both.
What no one could have imagined was that his life would be tragically taken by a drunk driver on December 23, 2016.
There’s no filling the hole that his passing has left – but his family and all that knew and loved him have his music – and with that – his spirit lives on.
The Grant a Guitar Annual Scholarship is the passion project of Adriana Holst – truly the love of Grant’s life (as Grant was truly the love of hers).
The Grant A Guitar Scholarship has a simple mission: To foster music appreciation and fluency – and, ultimately, to amplify the power that music has to improve our daily lives. In so doing, we work to honor the life and spirit of Grant Wilson in a lasting and meaningful way.
