Guitarist’s Workshop at Nenagh Arts Centre

Dublin Guitar Quartet – set to perform at Nenagh Arts Centre on the 22nd September – is Ireland’s leading guitar ensemble and includes Brian Bolger, Pat Brunnock, David Creevy and Tomas O’Durcain.

 

The Quartet is also offering a workshop to guitar players interested in developing their skills. The workshop takes place in the Arts Centre on the day before – Friday 21st. The two-hour event is open to all types of guitar players at all levels as players will be grouped according to their skills. This is a great opportunity for players of all styles, rock, jazz, classical and folk to expand their range on the guitar.

 

 

 

The following day, the Quartet’s concert will include a mix of celebrated works of the guitar quartet repertoire and modern classics by internationally acclaimed composers such Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Henryk Gorecki and Arvo Part. In March of 2004, Lyric FM broadcast their Mermaid Arts Centre concert over two installments of the ‘Horizons’ programme. This concert included a world premiere of Four Guitars by internationally acclaimed composer Kevin Volans.

 

The DGQ have played as guests of ‘rock’ groups such as The Redneck Manifesto (Dublin) and Final Fantasy (Canada) performing in venues such as Vicar St., Whelan’s of Wexford Street, the Project Arts Centre, Crawdaddy and the Roisin Dubh, Galway.

 

The concert will take place at 9 p.m. on Saturday, 22nd September. Doors open at 8 p.m. Admission is €15 and tickets are available from Nenagh Arts Centre in Banba Square on 067 34400.
