Festival Info

The 15th City of Derry Guitar Festival is proud to offer an all-female classical guitar line-up and, for the first time, a middle eastern flavour with a special workshop on the Arabic Oud.

Wiktoria Szubelak, Isabel Martinez and Dominika Bialostocka will bring their very distinctive playing styles to Derry-Londonderry for a weekend of classical guitar workshops, masterclasses and ensemble. The amazing Amir-John Haddad makes a welcome return with his popular Flamenco Guitar workshop and a unique talk on the Arabic Oud, during which he will will demonstrate how to play the instrument and outline the influences it had on modern guitar music.

By popular demand our Ukulele Course with Ronan Kearney will also be back with tuition all day Saturday and Sunday. And for the rockers out there Ted Lynch will be holding an Electric Guitar Course completely dedicated to the legendary band Black Sabbath, who recently completed their The End tour.

Please visit the course page for more details.
