Exploring virtually every aspect of the guitar’s personality, the New York Guitar Festival has presented many of the world’s most influential guitarists at iconic venues across the city for more than 20 years. From multi-Grammy winners to emerging artists, performers have included masters of the classical repertoire, pop and indie rock, folk and Americana, sounds of Central and South America and genre-defying innovators.
