NEW GIBSON LES PAULS, JUST IN!

03AGIB-LPTCGTCH1_full 03AGIB-LPTR5W5CH1_fullTwo more Gibson beauties just into Waltons Music shops. Gibson have named 2013 as Year of Les Paul, and have launched a series of Decade-dedicated Tribute Les Pauls. The Gibson Les Paul 50s Tribute in Wine Red (€799) nails the look, feel and tone of the set-neck, single-cutaway solid body that started it all. While the Les Paul Signature T Goldtop (€1,649) wraps all of Les Paul’s legendary innovation into a sweet looking and great sounding guitar that honors the memory of the legendary inventor, while giving you an instrument primed for the power and versatility demanded by today’s gigging guitarist.

Stay tuned for times of a Gibson Special Q & A Session in Waltons, George’s St, with Nick Aslin (Gibson Specialist) on Wednesday, 20th February!

NEW GIBSONS, JUST IN AT WALTONS!

Gibson 225naturalHere’s a flavour of one of the new range of Gibsons just into Waltons! The Gibson N-225 Electric Guitar @ €899 is an all-new Gibson design that is for guitarists who want to stand out! The striking looks aren’t all this axe is about though. A P-90 pickup in the neck and Dirty Fingers Plus pickup in the bridge with coil tapping provides a huge array of sounds that can handle anything from country to blues to heavy metal.  The unique double cutaway chambered Maple body with split diamond F-holes is a new design from Gibson that will turn some heads and provide great playing comfort. A short Lyre tailpiece gives the N-225 guitar a vintage vibe that is loads of fun to play with! Stay tuned for more new models for you to relish!

PERFORMERS ANNOUNCED FOR BOBBY MCFERRIN MEETS IRELAND!

New-School-banner-BMCF-FB4

The quality and variety of entries made it extraordinarily difficult for our adjudicators – both from the Waltons World Masters Series and Bobby’s creative team in New York – to make their final selections for the Bobby McFerrin Meets Ireland events at the National Concert Hall on Wednesday & Thursday, 6 & 7 March, but we have them at last! Click here to read details of artists selected. We would like to thank all of the wonderful performing artists who applied to participate, and while we could only choose a very small number, it was a pleasure and privilege for our adjudicators to witness the quality and diversity of performers working in Ireland today.

Announcement of Bobby McFerrin Meets Ireland participants delayed until Monday!

We know that the musicians and dancers who applied to participate in the Waltons World Masters – Bobby McFerrin Meets Ireland events on March 6th and 7th at the National Concert Hall are impatient to hear whether or not they have been selected, but the sheer quality, quantity and variety of entries from all over Ireland have made it extraordinarily difficult for the adjudicators – both from the Waltons World Masters Series and Bobby’s creative team in New York – to narrow down the field and make their final decisions. For this reason, they have asked us to delay the announcement of performers until Monday, 11 February, rather than today.
