Cordoba Guitar Festival

Cordoba Guitar Festival

Held annually in the month of July, the Cordoba Guitar Festival welcomes some of the best guitarists in the world, as well as instructors, composers and of course guitar craftsmen. The gathering includes performances by some of the most talented flamenco performers as well as artists from other genres such as classical, blues, rock and more. Daily workshops and courses are available to help musicians improve their skills, with plenty of other activities such as art exhibits, video screenings, panel discussions and more. While not 100% flamenco, there is always a strong flamenco presence because of the location in Cordoba. Flamenco artists include such names as Paco de Lucía, Gerardo Nuñez, Vicente Amigo, Tomatito, and Manolo Sanlúcar. And one can always count on an excellent bill with internationally known guitarists. The list over the years is impressive: Mark Knopfler, Carlos Santana, Pat Metheny, B.B. King, Bob Dylan, John Fogerty, Joe Satriani, Johnny Winter, and Chuck Berry.
