The very first Llyn Acoustic Guitar Festival takes place this weekend (from Friday October 5 - Sunday October 7) in Llanbedrog, north west Wales.
Based at the magnificent Plas Glyn-Y-Weddw Grade II Listed Victorian gothic mansion, the weekend promises to be a real treat for acoustic guitar aficionados of all styles with live performances, workshops and seminars from world class artists such as Vintage guitars signature artist Gordon Giltrap, Maart Allcock, Stuart Ryan and Gary Ryan.
"The aim of the festival is to offer world-class acoustic music and tuition to the guitar enthusiast of any level," says festival co-organiser Paul Brett, "and the fact that we have sold out means that we are already looking forward to 2013 and hiring larger venues to accommodate the demand."
Brett himself is known as one of the world's top 12-string guitar players, and will be also hosting workshops using his signature Vintage VE8000PB-12 guitar, along with fellow festival organiser, acoustic jazz supremo Andy MacKenzie.
