The Adelaide Guitar Festival has announced its 2021 program. Previously a biennial event, the 2021 program will mark the beginning of the Festival as an annual event.

Announcing the line-up, Artistic Director Slava Grigoryan said: “We are very fortunate to have so many extraordinary guitarists living right here in Australia, and this year is the perfect opportunity to celebrate their artistic excellence with a selection of inspiring performances and unique collaborations.”

“As always, we will shine a light on the guitar’s ability to star in any genre of music – everything from classical and jazz to rock, blues & roots and flamenco. It’s going to be a spectacular few weeks as we explore all the magnificent possibilities of this instrument, and the musicians who have spent years and even decades honing their skills.”

The 2021 program includes the Melbourne Guitar Quartet who will perform with Andrew Blanch, the winner of the 2019 Adelaide International Classical Guitar Competition, and the Adelaide Guitar Festival Orchestra.
