Ards Guitar Festival with Lowden Guitars
We were delighted to be part of the Ards International Guitar Festival on Friday 7th April 2017 with Lowden Guitars.
We were there for the talk by George Lowden himself in Newtownards Arts Centre from 5 to 6pm, where he chatted about how he got into making guitars, the history of the company, the famous people he's met and who play his instruments, as well as the sourcing of the woods and the various guitar designs.
We had the privilege of hanging out with Jon Gomm in a side room after the talk, and chatting to people about the selection of Lowden guitars we had with us, as well as our built to order slots. These are pre-reserved slots we have with Lowden throughout the year, which we can give to a customer who wishes to spec up their own combination, instead of the usual year waiting list to get your hands on one of these outstanding instruments.
The extremely talented Jon Gomm was playing a gig in the Queen's Hall after, with special guests Becky Langan and Amrit Sond. It was a fantastic evening all round and we're looking forward to next years already!
