Calling all guitarists – Sky Arts presents ‘Guitar Star’

guitar-star-sky-artsPick up a plectrum and crank the volume up to eleven – Sky Arts have launched Guitar Star, a major new competition to search for a world-class guitarist.

Sky Arts are searching the UK and Ireland for extraordinary guitar players who are willing to jam, strum and pluck their way to victory for the chance to perform on the main stage of major UK music festival, Latitude!

Whether their jam is rock, classical, jazz or acoustic, competing guitarists will be tested on their ability to play both in a range of musical styles and a genre of their choice, and will perform at famous venues associated with their chosen style.

Throughout the process, they’ll meet and be mentored by some of the biggest guitar stars in the world. The semi-finalists will hone their act in a recording studio, where they will work with a global guitar legend to perfect their sound.

All of this will be taking place under the watchful eye of top DJ Edith Bowman, who added “The guitar is the most loved and most played instrument in the UK and I just know there are some fantastic unknown players out there… I can’t wait to get stuck in to celebrating the wonders of the guitar across rock, jazz, folk, classical and beyond!”
