Highlights of this year’s festival include; classical virtuoso Manus Noble,  a monster night of blues with the launch of Ronnie Greer’s much awaited album featuring an all-star line-up of guests and a photography exhibition by Stuart Bailie. You’ll also find guitar themed film screenings, a Classic Album Brunch and lots of opportunities to learn from the masters themselves.
