New IGF res­i­den­tial cour­ses

Guitar Techniques - - Intro -

The In­ter­na­tional Gui­tar Fes­ti­val (IGF) has moved its 20-year res­i­dency in the West of Eng­land to the pic­turesque town of Shrews­bury. The IGF cel­e­brates this move with an ex­cep­tional line-up in a beau­ti­ful set­ting. Shrews­bury School of­fers a quintessen­tially Bri­tish cam­pus com­plete with con­cert hall, chapel, boathouses, swim­ming pool, ten­nis courts and gym, all across 100 acres of rich coun­try­side.

There are seven cour­ses dur­ing Au­gust 9-15, cov­er­ing all the stops and pro­vid­ing a whole host of gen­res to choose from in­clud­ing: Acous­tic, Jazz, Funk, Blues, Ad­vance Fin­ger­style, Clas­si­cal and Rock. Stu­dents have the chance to be fully res­i­den­tial and truly im­mersed in tra­di­tional sum­mer school life; so­cial­is­ing, jam­ming, learn­ing and, most im­por­tantly, hav­ing fun with their gui­tars!

The pro­gramme this year fea­tures per­for­mances from gui­tarist-com­poser Roland Dyens, Eden-Stell Gui­tar duo and EMI-signed, ground­break­ing gui­tarist, Xue­fei Yang. The tu­tors in­clude Tom Ker­stens, Amanda Cook and Ju­lian Masters for Clas­si­cal; Jazz with Dario Cortese; Blues with Gian­luca Corona; Funk with Ja­son Sid­well; Rock with

To­lis Zavaliaris; Acous­tic with Chris Woods; and Ad­vanced Fin­ger­style with Will McNi­col. Visit www.igf.org.uk for de­tails.
