It’s the summer of the guitar. Glenn Branca’s forthcoming visit to Dublin for the Analog festival on July 15th will see the New York composer instructing 100 local guitar slingers for a performance of Hallucination City.

Meanwhile, some of the most prestigious guitar maestros in Europe will be plucking strings at the Walton’s Guitar Festival of Ireland later this month in the capital.

Those taking part in this year’s festival from June 27th to July 1st include Anniello Desiderio, John Feeley and Berta Rojas.

The centrepiece of the festival will be a performance by the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet at the National Concert Hall. More information from guitarfestivalofireland.com
