Waltons Guitar Festival of Ireland 2010

The Waltons Guitar Festival of Ireland will be taking place from 22-25 July, 2010. The festival, now in its seventh year, is a world-class music event and features a programme of great performances, showcasing the best in classical, jazz, folk and world music in some of Dublin’s finest venues.

This year the festival leads with a lunchtime concert by guitar and voice duo Alec O’Leary (guitar) and Deirdre Moynihan (soprano) followed that evening by ‘one of the guitar-world’s guiding lights’ the great French player and composer Roland Dyens. Always transformative events, Roland Dyens’ concerts unfold as personal experiences of emotional awakening for the audience. For those who are unfamiliar with the contours and nuances of classical guitar performance, one often witnesses an inspirational discovery of the instrument and its musical potential, not to mention the pleasure it gives the audience. He has a sensitive and colorful approach to the guitar – an unfailing open-mindedness which brings together all forms of music to each and every one of his programs.

John Feeley is internationally renowned as a performer and teacher and he is a regular at the Waltons Guitar Festival of Ireland. As a past festival favourite he has been described by Michael Dervan in the Irish Times as ‘a trailblazer…when it comes to the guitar and guitar-playing in Ireland’. He will be performing in the festival on Friday 23rd July.

On Sat. 24th July the true spirit of Argentine tango comes to the National Concert Hall with dancers, bandoneon, voice and guitars. Direct from Buenos Aires for one night only Tango & Friends is a fascinating vocal-instrumental performance mixed with the choreographies of two tango dancers in a night of passion, seduction and sensuality.

The following day grammy award winner Andrew York performs in what will be a spectacular end to the festival events for 2010. In any generation there are many musicians, but very few artists that communicate on a profound cultural level. Andrew York is one of these rare artistic voices. Think Picasso painting with sound as a canvas, or a Miles Davis behind the guitar.

Lag T66 new range just landed,

Lag T66D dreadnought, Lag T66DC & T66DCE dreadnought cutaway & cutaway electric, T66A auditorium, T66ACE auditorium cutaway electric, TN66A auditorium nylon.

you can see the full range by clicking here

the preamp on the Electric-acoustic  models is the DIRECTLÂG preamp, an highly efficient, user-friendly and very affordable. The exclusive “Dynamics” control brings additional and original “Mid Cut/Mid Boost” adjustment to the traditional Bass & Treble controls. The mids adjustment is very interesting on stage because you can easily adapt your own sound to a specific song or to the sound and frequencies of the room itself where you are playing… The Phase switch is also very useful on stage to immediately cut any feedback, and the Mute switch a real security when you need to be absolutely silent.

Lag t66 are available online and in the shops now.
