Spectacular Opportunity for Acoustic Guitarists

As a part of the Acoustic Guitar Spectacular at Gatakers Artspace on Saturday 25 November we have a fantastic opportunity for a local emerging or professional guitarist to perform on the night. The selected guitarist will also receive a one-on-one mentoring session with Soenke Meinen, Bruce Mathiske or Michael Fix.
