– GUITARES AU BEFFROI CHANGES HIS NAME –
2020 - 2021 EDITION
PARIS GUITAR FESTIVAL
Created by the Guitares au Beffroi Association with the support of the city of Montrouge, SOGEB, SACEM and SPEDIDAM, the GUITARES AU BEFFROI festival, for its 9th edition, changes its name, keeps and extends its offer to become the PARIS GUITAR FESTIVAL.
This 3-day festival, with its SALON DE LA BELLE GUITAREis today, in France, the largest international gathering of guitar makers.
The PARIS GUITAR FESTIVAL is aimed at professionals and amateurs alike. He is interested in all styles of guitars (from classical to rock through jazz, flamenco, song, country blue grass, gypsy ...) and more broadly, plucked strings of all kinds (oud , banjo, ukulele, mandolin ...) as well as to manufacturers of amps, microphones, and other accessories.
This is the best opportunity to see, listen to or try out the most beautiful guitars in the world and enjoy around fifty demonstration concerts during the day and major concerts in the evening.
New this year, the opening of another exhibition hall (within the city hall itself, just opposite the Belfry) dedicated to the study guitar. The opportunity to open up to a less experienced audience but to whom we want to share our passion. We offer « Dare the guitar » operations that allow young guitarists to come and try out instruments and rub shoulders with professionals. In the same vein, introductory workshops « Dare to play the guitar », « Meet luthiers » and / or « Make your own effects pedal » workshops are presented.
Finally, as every year, a special evening is devoted to classical music, in partnership with the review Guitare Classique, and presents an international competition - classical guitar revelation: the « Roland Dyens International Competition ».
