The Clonakilty International Guitar Festival is one of the most iconic music events in Ireland. The festival has a rich history that dates back to 2004 when it was first established. The event started as a local celebration of guitar music and has grown over the years to become an internationally recognized festival featuring some of the best guitarists from around the world.
The festival’s history is rooted in the town’s love for music, specifically guitar music. It all began when a group of local musicians came together to organize a small concert featuring guitar players from their community. This initial gathering sparked an interest among residents and visitors alike, leading to the creation of what is now known as the Clonakilty International Guitar Festival.
Over time, this event has grown into an international platform for showcasing talent and promoting musical diversity.
The festival takes place in various venues around Clonakilty, with something for everyone – workshops, concerts, jam sessions and masterclasses. There’s no better way to connect with like-minded music lovers than at this incredible event.
The Clonakilty International Guitar Festival is a celebration of music, culture and community. For over a decade, this festival has been bringing people together from all walks of life to experience the magic that happens when talented musicians come together with passionate fans.
