Our headline act on Saturday 29th is multiple Music award winning Welsh singer songwriter and guitarist Martyn Joseph - a 30 year veteran of the music industry who has been compared to Springsteen, John Mayer, Dave Matthews and others.

Friday 28th is a "nu-coustic" instrumental night featuring Mike Dawes, a fingerstyle genius who tours internationally opening for (and playing lead guitar for) Justin Hayward (Moody Blues). Our special guest opening act on both nights is Grammy award-winner, Amrit Sond. GuitarFest 2016 gigs will be at Peel Centenary Centre plus a Guitar Masterclass from Mike Dawes on Saturday afternoon. We're holding an industry brunch on the morning of Sunday 30th in Douglas where our visiting perfomers will talk about working in the music industry, tales from tours, and take questions from the audience.

  5. Scottish Australian musician and actor, Colin Hay, familiar to millions as front-man, songwriter, and vocalist of pop sensation Men At Work ("Down Under," "Overkill," "Who Can It Be Now?"), makes his Isle of Man debut for JonnoPromotions supported by More Music 3FM! He's an artist who is a true master of his craft, over the past 16 years or so, Colin has reinvented himself as a solo artist, regularly selling out theatres and listening rooms across the US and around the world and introducing himself to a new generation of fans in the process. The frequent use of his music in TV and film - including hit shows such as Scrubs (on which he has made several cameo appearances) Army Wives and Modern Family, the hit soundtrack to the film Garden State and the recently released Words and Pictures - has proven the timeless appeal of his songs. A great evening of entertainment in prospect with a short guest opening slot from Manx music maestros Matt Kelly and Paul Rogers - aka Strengyn! Supported by More Music

JonnoPromotions presents "An evening with Richard Digance". Tickets £15 from http://www.eTickets.im/jp Also available from the Laxey Chemist & the Laxey Post Office for Friday 1st and from Erin Arts Centre box office for Sunday 3rd. Many people sing, play guitar and tell stories but not many have supported Steve Martin, the late Robin Williams or played a guitar duet with Brian May of Queen, Richard Digance has. ROARING SUCCESS AT EDINBURGH FESTIVAL!!!!* * * * * FIVE STAR (TOP RATING) EDINBURGH REPORTER* * * * EDINBURGH HERALD* * * * THREE WEEKS PICK OF THE FRINGE - MERVYN STUTTER REVIEW Richard Digance is a rare performer in that he's respected by comedians for his original material and by musicians for being an accomplished performer/guitarist. His loyal following confirms his wide appeal, from the younger generation attracted by both his guitar playing and the fact he has inspired many modern-day performers, to the super-loyal who have followed Richard since the time he had his own ITV series and even further when he started out in folk clubs. His evergreen career has been acknowledged through numerous awards within both the music and entertainment industries, from a BAFTA Nomination as a TV entertainer to a Gold Award from The British Academy of Composers and Songwriters. He is included in The Virgin Anthology of Songwriters for his important contribution to British comedy songwriting. Richard Digance is also a world-acclaimed poet. His poetry is published around the world, from The University of British Columbia, Canadian syllabus for English; Fearndon Teaching Aids, Illionois, USA, The Oxford University Anthology of Poetry, The West Indies Schools syllabus and more recently in Australia, Swaziland and in Cape Town, South Africa as part of English First Additional Language Grade 8 Reader. He has survived all trends with his two hour one-man show, an entertainer who many younger comedians, including Ross Noble, claim as one of their major influences. On his own ITV Saturday-night show Richard has played guitar with Queen's Brian May, The Moody Blues, Status Quo, Chris deBurgh, Juan Martin, Marc Cohn and Elkie Brooks.

  14. Juan Martín has launched a new duo project with fellow Flamenco virtuoso Chaparro de Málaga. Melodic and explosive, their pieces - composed or arranged by Juan Martín - evoke the visceral power of authentic flamenco in a musical dialogue between two masters of this great and esoteric art. The programme will transport you to the Classic Spain of Málaga, Granada, Córdoba and Jerez on a journey through the diverse cultures of Andalucia; from the Byzantine chants, the Hebraic and Moorish laments, to the sounds of Argentina and Cuba returning from South America, evident in the rumba, guajiras and milonga. Juan and Chaparro also acknowledge the inspirational effect flamenco has had upon so many classical composers, and will perform arrangements of the Malagueñas of Lecuona and other classical pieces. Juan Martin is: "The leading flamenco guitarist of his generation" The Guardian "A giant of the flamenco guitar tradition" The Times www.youtube.com/watch?v=irMld8whPbI http://www.flamencovision.com/ Tickets £15 from Erin Arts Centre Box Office, Peter Norris Music or http://www.eTickets.im/jp GuitarFest is a Jonnopromotions.com event supported by Island of Culture, Arts Council, Culture Vannin and Aston International Limited to all of whom, many thanks.

  17. Stuart Fleming & John Hywel Morris PRS for Music, Kirsty Geoghegan (Airstate/Valentine Music) and Ruth Keggin (IOM PRS for Music Member) Venue: @Kensington Kensington Road Youth Arts Centre Doors Open: 19:00:00 Free Tickets from this link: http://tinyurl.com/PRS-for-Music-GuitarFest-2014 Music Industry Seminar to kick off IOM GuitarFest 2014 Ever wanted to know how to make money from music? Here’s your chance. IOM GuitarFest 2014 launches this year with a talk from leading UK music industry experts at Kensington Road Youth Arts Centre on Thursday 2nd October 2014 at 7pm. PRS for Music, the UK's leading royalty collecting society, has kindly offered to host the opening event entitled: “Rights and Royalties: How songwriters can make a living from their music”. The talk will include an open and informal Q&A session with the audience and brief performances by guest musicians. The industry panel includes two senior representatives from PRS for Music. Stuart Fleming is senior manager for membership development in Scotland & Northern Ireland and manages PRS for Music’s ongoing education programme across both countries. Stuart will be joined by John Hywel Morris who is senior manager for membership development at PRS for Music in Wales. John has worked at PRS for Music for nineteen years, serving Welsh PRS and MCPS members. He has had to deal with all sorts of member and licensing issues in his career and is well placed to offer the best kind of advice to composers, publishing companies and musicians alike. Local singer and musician Ruth Keggin will join the panel to offer her perspective on writing, publishing, recording and touring music since starting out on her solo career in 2012. Also speaking is Kirsty Geoghegan from Airstate, an independent UK music publishing company that specialises in maximising performing rights royalties for music used within broadcast media. Kirsty also represents UK music publisher Valentine Music, which licenses and publishes a diverse range of artists from musical genres including jazz and orchestral music. Jonno Gollow, creator and promoter of IOM GuitarFest said: “I’m thrilled to welcome the PRS for Music team and other industry guests for this opening GuitarFest event. Music rights and royalties are a hugely important part of the music industry. For many musicians, whose focus is predominantly on their art, I know that area must be quite daunting. Songwriters and composers have to recognise the “business” end of “showbusiness” so that the music they create can really work for them.” Ruth Keggin said: “Working with PRS has been invaluable for me. I’ve learnt so much from them in the process of making a career in music. Rights, royalties, publishing, licensing; these things are essential for musicians to know about, whether you use the information now or later in your career.” The evening will take the shape of an informal discussion on songwriting, different income streams for musicians and an informal Q&A with the audience to answer their questions. The event is supported by PRS for Music, GuitarFest, Arts Council, and Island of Culture. The talk begins at 7pm and is free of charge. This will be followed by an informal networking opportunity at the Prospect pub, hosted by PRS for Music, from 9pm onwards. GuitarFest is a JonnoPromotions event supported by Island of Culture, Arts Council, Culture Vannin and Aston International Limited to all of whom, many thanks. GuitarFest design by Martyn Cain.
