Cognac Blues Festival dates

The dates for the Cognac Blues Festival have been announced as  2-7 July 2013.

These dates coincide with our Fingertsyle Guitar Workshop  (30 June – 6 July) with renown guitarist Peppino D’Agostino. Last year we all went in a couple  of times to the AgostinoFestival and enjoyed some great music in the sunshine. There is no doubt that we will go in again on the Wednesday afternoon which is free time.

Not all the acts have been announced but some of the headliners are Ben Harper, Charlie Musselwhite, Beth Hart and Sinead O’Connor.

We have been going to the Cognac Blues Festival for the last 10 years and so it is always a great pleasure when it coincides with a workshop and we can take the students in to enjoy some live music . Yet another good reason to book on our Fingerstyle Workshop with Peppino D’Agostino.
