Featuring a greater number of free concerts than ever before, the one-of-a-kind New York Guitar Festival illumines the mid-winter season with a cavalcade of performances, from January 10th–30th, that embrace the instrument’s multi-faceted personae in rock, jazz, blues, Baroque, contemporary classical, and, perhaps, a bit of bluegrass.
The 2014 Festival boasts 30+ pioneering guitarists, including Maestro Pepe Romero of the internationally celebrated Romero Family, who, among their multiple accomplishments, invented the guitar quartet as a genre. Romero performs solo on the Festival’s Opening Night. Classical guitarists William Kanengiser and Badi Assad co-curate this season’s Marathon, at Kaufman Music Center’s Merkin Concert Hall, which will be presented free of charge for the first time in the Festival’s history.
