2016 Festival Info

We are very excited to announce our amazing line-up of international artists for the 2016 City of Derry Guitar Festival!

With Matthew McAllister and Amanda Cook making a welcome return the Classical Guitar course promises to be packed with opportunities to learn from the best through workshops and masterclasses. The amazing Amir-John Haddad will bring back his passion and unmistakable style for a concert and a two-hour Flamenco workshop, while Esmond Selwyn will be joining us for the first time to share some priceless tips on jazz guitar playing in a two-hour workshops. 

By popular demand our Beginners Ukulele Course with Ronan Kearney will also be back with tuition all day Saturday and Sunday. And for the rockers out there Ted Lynch will be holding an Electric Guitar Course completely dedicated to the legendary Gary Moore and his riffs.

Please visit the course page for more details.


This year we are also introducing a new course format! Tuition for the full weekend courses will be concentrated on Saturday and Sunday, all day. We thought this will give people who work the opportunity to attend more easily and make the course more accessible.


CHECK THIS OUT! We've been listed among the best Festivals in Northern Ireland for the summer of 2016!
