Wednesday 23rd to Saturday 26th August 2017


Next summer sees the fifth acoustic guitar workshop in La Fontenelle, to be led for a second time by Will McNicol, one of the UK’s leading guitarists and composers.  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)
