Wednesday 22nd to Saturday 25th August 2018


Next summer sees the sixth acoustic guitar workshop in La Fontenelle, to be led by Tristan Seume, one of the UK’s leading guitarists, making a return visit after a break of two years.  The course will explore pieces and compositional styles from around the world including folk, blues and Latin-American and it will end with an informal concert. Whilst it caters for varying abilities, it is recommended that participants have a good grasp of acoustic guitar basics (standard chord shapes and a few fingerstyle patterns) to gain the maximum benefit from this experience.

Cost: £250 (Deposit £50)
