Guitarists in the Edinburgh/Lothians area may be interested in this year’s Edinburgh International Guitar Festival, run by my friend and colleague, Mike McGeary. Amongst other things, the weekend (23/24 Sept) features two recitals in Duddingston Kirk (map here) – both of which are open to the public:
Friday 23 Sept at 19:30 – Sean Shibe (2011 Gold Medalist in ROSL Annual Music Competition) – read a crit where The Herald’s Michael Tumelty explains how Sean ‘turned him on to classical guitar’
Saturday 24 Sept at 19:30 – Allan Neave, Lecturer in Guitar at Royal Conservatoire of Scotland
During the day of Saturday 24, Allan will be running a workshop and masterclass.
