Guitar improvisation workshop in Kerry, 17-21 Oct. 2016

After the banjo treat yesterday, thanks to Cathal Cusack for drawing attention to this event in the very near future at Valentia Island, Co. Kerry, organised by the Gitarrenzentrum of Remscheid (in the Ruhr district of Germany).

The Gitarrenzentrum specialises in acoustic guitars, with an emphasis on classical, flamenco, and gipsy swing - bluegrass is not mentioned. However, their big-body Calliope-brand guitars, on display at the brand new Dingle Folk Fest in Kerry tomorrow (Sat. 15 Oct.), will be of interest to luthiers and instrument freaks generally. The workshop on swing guitar, improvisation, and composition will be given by Kai Heumann at the Lighthouse, Valentia, from Monday to Friday next week, for five hours each day. Full details, including participation fee, are here. A quote:

Kai’s workshops have a clear message: music must be fun because then learning is much easier.
