West Sussex Guitar Festival 2006 - Winners

Posted by admin on December 16, 2006

The Festival got off to a wonderful start on the Friday night with the world famous guitarist/composer Jorge Cardoso. Entries for the Festival increase year on year and this time there were a total of 95 junior and 51 senior entries in 42 classes from non-competitive beginner to recital class.

This was one of the most successful festivals to date.

We were very fortunate in having Gary Ryan as adjudicator for all 3 days of the competition. As well as being a brilliant guitarist and composer, Gary is also a great raconteur who can release the secrets of good technique in an easy going and humorous manner that no one will ever forget.
