June 10 - June 14, 2009
Boston GuitarFest 2009 is a concentrated guitar workshop consisting of concerts, master classes, workshops, lectures, and three separate international competitions, attracting professionals and aficionados from around the world. Boston GuitarFest is the dream of visionary guitar virtuoso Eliot Fisk. While the main focus is always on the classical guitar, the festival also aims to set the instrument within a broader musical, cultural and social context. In 2009, our attention will be focused on Mexican music and culture (¡Viva Mexico!), celebrating the traditions and new directions of Mexico's national instrument. A range of artistic and cultural expressions will be offered including film, popular music, and other aspects of Mexico's rich cultural landscape.
