Our friend Richard at Ullapool Guitar Festival has a few last minute spare tickets for the great weekend he has lined up from 7th-9th October. If you enjoyed the performers and workshops we had a couple weekends ago, then you’ll absolutely love the Ullapool Festival too; it’s a truly wonderful location, performance line up, workshops, guitar makers area and great social time with other fingerstyle guitarists so please follow the link by clicking on the picture below to book a last minute ticket before they sell out.

Great guitar festivals really need your support to keep running each year so thank you for buying tickets for our festival and if you haven’t been to Ullapool before, then do yourself a favour and take a weekend out there too!

Thanks to everyone who attended the inaugural European Fingerstyle Collective Festival 2022 in Exeter, UK. Also a huge thanks to our sponsors (without whom this festival could not have happened – Elixir strings, Mayson Guitars and G7th Capo’s) and those who helped out over the weekend…..much appreciated. Here are just a few pix from a great weekend (courtesy of Dave at www.pixtures.co.uk):
