The Acoustic Forum is an eclectic event unlike anything else you’ve ever seen which sees five of our artists play in an intimate and informal concert in the round, with each artist staying onstage for the duration.  Guided by the guest host, each performer gives an insight into their craft and performs a short selection to whet the appetite for the weekend ahead.  It’s off the cuff, it’s friendly and it provides the listener with a varied and spontaneous night that never fails to surprise! This year’s guest host is Clonakilty native and international axeman Bill Shanley, with guests: master of Irish traditional music Steve Cooney; American fingerstyle behemoth and raconteur extraordinaire Richard Gilewitz; local songwriter who experiments with percussive technique Fintan McKahey; and Sweden’s brightest country-blues warrior Shoutin’ Red.
