Press Release

20th International Guitar Festival of Great Britain

4th to 28th November 2008

Alongside a line-up of world class guitarists of all genres and styles, such as 60s pop hero Andy Fareweather Low, local legend Gary Murphy and James Burton, guitarist to the king of rock ‘n’ roll himself – Elvis Presley, this year we have recruited honorary ambassadors from all 5 continents, proving that 20 years on, the festival has truly become an international event.

The ambassadors are:

John Williams        Classical, Australia
John Etheridge        Jazz, UK & Europe
Woody Mann        Blues, USA
Galina Vale            Classical, Eastern Europe
Lucky Ranku        Jazz/World Music, South Africa

And the timing for such a world-class event couldn’t be better – this years International Guitar Festival will be one of the last major events under the Liverpool Capital of Culture 2008 banner, providing a fitting close to what’s been a brilliant year for arts and music in Liverpool.

Keep up to date on the latest festival news, events, and even audience-member reviews at We look forward to seeing you there.

THE 20TH INTERNATIONAL GUITAR FESTIVAL OF GREAT BRITAIN appears at various venues in Wirral from 4th – 28th November 2008.  For tickets contact Box Office 0151 647 0752.  Book on-line at
