about the artists

Welcome!

Thank you so much for making your way to the new La Guitarra California Festival 2021 website.

It is our sincerest hope to be able to present the Festival with Live Performances and Masterclasses in 2022 and to celebrate with some of the world’s most gifted guitarists.

The La Guitarra California Festival will now present guitarists of ALL genres so whether you like Jazz, Blues, Fingerstyle, Flamenco, Rock, Classical, the whole beautiful spectrum of guitar playing will now be part of La Guitarra California.
It is the LGC Advisory Boards intention to expand the Festival internationally too.

Please check back over the weeks and months ahead to receive more information about the new dates, guitarists to appear, the Festival schedule, and tickets. Also, if you would like to be kept up-to-date by email, you can go to the "CONTACT” page at the bottom of the site and send us a message requesting direct updates.

The La Guitarra California Festival has been presented at Cuesta College three times, Allan Hancock College two times and at Cal Poly four times. Historically the Festival has been held every two years and now it is becoming an annual event to be held at different locations in California.
