It’s with great pleasure that I invite you to join us for the 4th Adelaide International Guitar Festival, a unique salute to the world’s most popular instrument in its many diverse forms. This year’s program brings some truly pioneering musicians to Australia for the very first time and sees the return to Adelaide of some of the most influential players of our generation. There will be a range of ways to experience these artists, from concerts to masterclasses, from hands-on workshops to late-night club sessions and the new Meet the Maker series. Australian music and outstanding local artistsfeature throughout the program and there will be rare performances that won’t ever be repeated beyond this Festival. I’m honoured to bring you this program and I look forward to seeing you in August.
