While browsing the many exhibits at this year’s Harrietville Festival, I ran across some promotion for the 2009 Melbourne Guitar Makers Festival.

The Melbourne Guitar Makers Festival is a two day event comprising an exhibition of instruments made by some of the country’s best luthiers.

Luthiers will be exhibiting their finest and latest work during the day and the evening will see an acoustic concert from some of Melbourne’s leading players.

The guitar makers festival will be held in the Abbotsford Convent in Melbourne. A relaxing and spacious atmosphere in which to appreciate these acoustic instruments.

The convent is set in tranquil gardens at the end of St Helliers Road in Abbotsford, next to the Collingwood Children’s Farm and the Melbourne’s Yarra River, to be held 16th – 17th May 2009.

I’ll attempt to bring you more news closer to the event.
