SEK 1: Showcases, Tutors & Venues

From November 2018 – February 2019 young & emerging guitarists from across Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly worked together to create new music with professional support. Groups from Five Islands Academy Isles of Scilly, Cornwall College St Austell, Live Wire Saltash, DBS Music Camborne & Penryn College created their own exciting music + a piece inspired by Jimi Hendrix.

Thank you to all who came along to see them perform at our contemporary electric guitar evenings.
