George Lowden is one of the world’s most celebrated luthiers, and his guitars are played by the finest players on the planet. The list of Lowden devotees includes Eric Clapton, Pierre Bensusan, Paul Brady, Ed Sheeran, Damien Rice, Alex DeGrassi, Richard Thompson, Mike Oldfield, Nick Harper, Jon Gomm, Bill Shanley and Thomas Leeb. George is an old friend of the festival, having given numerous seminars and workshops over the previous 12 years. As we celebrate our thirteenth year, George is celebrating his forty third in the business!
This year George will give a talk on ‘guitar voicing – how to ensure a responsive guitar – for songwriting or for stage.’
