In November I was performing, teaching and working on the Competition Jury at the Acerra Guitar Festival in Italy.

Acerra is a small town located close to Napoli and in the centre of the town stands Baronial Castle where this annual Guitar Festival is held.

The festival is run by Eugenio Silva an Italian Guitarist and Director who works hard to provide an excellent Competition and Masteclass series for the students alongside an International Concert Series.

This year the festival featured a very International line up including Marcin Dylla from Poland, Nejc Kuhar from Slovenia alongside Italian players such as Aniello Desiderio & Antonio de Innocentis.
