Please note that masterclasses will most likely be delivered by guitarists ‘theatre style’ depending on number of attendees to each class. If theatre style, there may not be ‘guitars in hands’ opportunities during the masterclasses. Wherever possible though we hope numbers will permit attendees to bring guitars to the masterclasses, if on the day a particular masterclass has relatively small numbers (approx 30 or below), then the guitarist delivering the masterclass at their discretion may be willing to allow attendees to ‘try out’ exercises, techniques etc ‘lesson style’. Attendees are not permitted to video a masterclass or performance

Open Mic Stage

In the main bar and cafe area of the Phoenix Exeter venue, we will run an ‘open mic’ stage for anyone interested in just getting up and performing fingerstyle guitar during certain times of the festival (TBC). On this stage we will allow vocals accompanied by fingerstyle guitar for anyone wanting to show off their guitar and singing talents.
