* The 2016 Guiting Music Festival is now over.
* The 2017 Programme will be developed during August and September and announced here as soon as we have reached agreement with the artists involved.
* Thank you to everyone who helped to make this year's Festival yet another great success; a huge amount of work goes into bringing the Festival to Guiting Power each year and EVERYONE involved (apart from the artists!) are unpaid volunteers and without whose help the Guiting Music Festival would never happen.
WHAT WAS ON THIS YEAR
Our programme for 2016 was significantly
and started with two new
Outreach Concerts held at Chedworth in April. We
also extended the
and Open-air Folk
concerts to give you more time to appreciate the great
performers we had lined up for you.
Joanna MacGregor, the GMF's Honorary President,
played the opening concert on Friday 22nd July.
This was the precursor to our
new Jazz Weekend, comprising three concerts
over two days by four great jazz artists.
We placed an even stronger emphasis on attracting younger people to this year's festival and
laid on two new
the first of which was Jason Rebello, making his fourth appearance at the GMF. This year he
performed pieces from his
Rainbow album, which he had written for his own children and comprised well known themes and tunes but given a light jazz twist.
Finally, to make the festival even more attractive to the
younger audience (and their parents!) we offered
TICKETS to ALL concerts for anyone aged 19 or under!
As introduced last year, you were again able to buy your tickets on-line and have tickets
sent immediately to you by email, or to your tablet or mobile.
For the indoor concerts, you could choose your own seats.
