The festival is a celebration of the most popular musical instrument in the world – the guitar, and features some of the top guitar players around playing jazz, rock, blues, classical and everything in between. The festival includes workshops, an all-day acoustic stage and stalls.
On Saturday 23 May 2015 at 6.00pm, as part of the Guitar Festival 2015, alumnus and former Goldsmiths guitar tutor Branco Stoysin will perform a solo-guitar concert – a mixture of jazz, classical and traditional folk songs of the former Yugoslavia. Price of entry is £7.

Guest post by Branco Stoysin (Certificate Music Teaching to Adults, 2000), an extraordinary yet entirely natural-sounding acoustic guitarist that is so pleasingly distinctive. He pulls off the blending of original music, jazz, finger-style and Serbian enthralling traditional effortlessly. Branco’s evocative, neo-impressionist writing, has flowing warmth and elegance, while retaining an edge of energy and invention. There is real musical intelligence behind his relaxing, Sun drenched music. An unalloyed treat throughout. Not to be missed!
