Acoustic Guitar Spectacular 2019

Acoustic Guitar Spectacular 2019

July 03, 2019 - July 26, 2019

A highly anticipated annual event, the Acoustic Guitar Spectacular brings together a hand-picked group of internationally recognised acoustic guitarists from across the globe. This series of very special concerts is hosted by internationally acclaimed Brisbane guitarist Michael Fix, who will be joined by YouTube sensation, Italian virtuoso Luca Stricagnoli (his first visit to Australia) and Roots/Rock multi-instrumentalist Minnie Marks.

The concerts are structured so that each player will feature as solo artists, as well as performing as an ensemble, allowing plenty of opportunity for spontaneity and improvisation. Three players with such diverse musical backgrounds presents amazing possibilities, and incredible variety for audiences.

Each guitarist is known for their ability to entertain, and each present their unique music with a view to engage and delight audiences with stories, songs, and humour, (as well as fretboard fireworks!), making it a performance aimed for all people, not just 'guitar aficionados'.

This is a rare opportunity to see such a wealth of amazing musical talent on the one stage. In particular, it’s a unique chance to see one of the international young stars of the global acoustic guitar scene.
