Vietnam Int’l Fingerstyle Guitar Festival 2018 to return to Hanoi

Fingerstyle is a new genre of solo guitar music in Vietnam. Playing fingerstyle guitar has become popular in Vietnam in recent years. One simple way of describing this genre is that with only a single guitar a performer can play as if he is an entire band. Fingerstyle brings about a whole new perspective for the acoustic guitar and is currently drawing attention for the guitar-music genre from our community.
The event, part of the International Finger-Style Guitar Festival (IFSGF) comprises a series of international finger style guitar concerts. The annual event has been organized continuously since 2010 in Asia with the participation of famous finger style guitarists from many countries.
The festival will feature the performances of five fingerstyle guitarists around the world, including one-handed guitarist Andres Godoy from Chile, Ryohei Shimoyama from Japan, Tom Lumen from Hungary, Huang Chia-Wei from Taiwan (China), Claus Boesser-Ferrari from Germany.
