Six String Sessions in Dublin and Belfast, Sept.-Nov. 2011

Thanks to Clem O'Brien for news of a forthcoming series, arranged by Nigel Martyn, of weekly concerts and workshops by leading guitarists, which should prove a real treat (and challenge) for aficionados in the coming autumn.

The venues for the series are the Helix, Dublin City University, Collins Avenue, Glasnevin, Dublin 9, and the Black Box, 18-22 Hill St., in the Cathedral Quarter of Belfast. The first event will be held in the Space at the Helix on Thursday 29 Sept. at 8.30 p.m., and will feature award-winning American guitarist, teacher, and workshop organiser Steve Kaufman together with our own Clem O'Brien (see photo below).

Subsequent weekends will feature Johnny Dickinson and Henry McCullough; Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo; Gareth Pearson and Craig d'Andrea; Clive Carroll and Shane Hennessy; and Martin Taylor and Andreas Varady. Each of these pairs will play on consecutive days in Dublin and Belfast.

Full details for the Dublin series can be seen here, and for the Belfast series here. A new instructional DVD by Steve Kaufman has just been released by Homespun Tapes.
