A highly anticipated annual event, the Acoustic Guitar Spectacular brings together a hand-picked group of unique and original virtuoso guitarists from Australia & overseas.
This series of very special concerts is hosted by internationally acclaimed Brisbane guitarist Michael Fix, who will be joined by legendary Brisbane guitarist, songwriter, composer, arranger and bandleader Jamie Clark and award-winning Fingerstyle guitarist and composer from Cairns, Jordan Brodie.
The concerts are structured so that each player will feature as solo artists, as well as performing as an ensemble, allowing plenty of opportunity for spontaneity and improvisation. Three players with such diverse musical backgrounds presents amazing possibilities, and incredible variety for audiences.
Each guitarist is known for their ability to entertain, and each present their unique music with a view to engage and delight audiences with stories, songs, and humour, (as well as fretboard fireworks!), making it a performance aimed for all people, not just 'guitar aficionados'.
This is a unique opportunity to see three talented and original stars of the global acoustic guitar scene, together on one stage.
