Turin Brakes (Acoustic)

Friday 16th - Sunday 18th November

Acoustic Blues & Roots Weekend

We are very happy to announce that our guest tutors for 2018 are the wonderful guitarists, Damir 'Hal' Halilic & Michael Messer.

Damir 'Hal Halilic (known as Hal) is a master guitarist. Hal is quite simply one of the greatest guitarists in the world and was the 2014 Porin Music Award Winner. In the past decade Hal has recorded six highly acclaimed albums, toured the world and collaborated with many of the world's top guitarists, including Martin Taylor, Tommy Emmanuel, Woody Mann, BJ Cole and John Jorgensen. Spending time with Hal in his classes and at the evening events will be a fantastic experience for everyone involved. Hal's knowledge of guitar music from blues, rock, folk, jazz, classical and many other genres is unsurpassed. This is a masterclass with a true master of the guitar.

Michael Messer will be teaching slide, lap steel and open tuned guitar. Michael's reputation as a virtuoso innovator are well known. Michael has released ten albums, toured worldwide, has a successful line of MM guitars and a series of slide guitar tuition DVDs. Johnny Cash was a fan of Michael Messer's music and wrote the sleeve notes for his album Rhythm Oil, a rare honour shared only with Bob Dylan on the Nashville Skyline album.
