Guitar Festival of Ireland

"The Guitar Festival of Ireland offers a week full of contrast and vitality. Superbly organised, its varied and stimulating recitals attract audiences in some of the finest Dublin venues. Now in its tenth year, it provides an excellent showcase for the guitar and its artists. Long may it prosper" Graham Wade, CGM, London.

// Festival Perspective

The 2013 GFI events are over for another year. We would like to sincerely thank all who participated and our many audiences. The 2013 events were some of the best and most memorable in our 10 year history. One of the many highlights included a very special festival commission from Roland Dyens for the Royal Irish Academy of Music guitar orchestra: GuitaRIAM. Directed by Head of Guitar Studies in the RIAM Marion Hyland they were simply beaming with talent and passion, performing with rarely seen enthusiasm – a very moving performance of this wonderful new work for guitar ensemble. This concert alone reaffirmed the reasons for all the work and dedication that goes into the production of the GFI. I hope you enjoyed the concerts and masterclasees this season and we look forward to seeing you again at the next installment of YOUR guitar festival. Please keep in touch (for our social networks see the red plus sign at the top of the page).

Please note that there will be no guitar festival in 2014. Big plans for the 2015 season!
