guitar-festivalRONDA is to host it’s second annual guitar festival showcasing top international artists.

 
Hundreds of music fans from around the world will descend on the city to enjoy concerts, workshops, talks and artisan guitar makers selling their wares in the atmospheric setting of Santo Domingo convent.

 
The event was founded by Surrey-born Lucy Stewart, 42, and her internationally renowned guitarist husband Paco Seco, 43.

 
They run the Ronda Guitar House, where the festival was born from their love of the genre.

 
“My husband is an international concert guitarist and we thought we would set up a festival so that we would get to see famous artists in Ronda,” said Lucy.

 
“It’s not just flamenco and classic guitar, it’s all kinds of performers from Spain, Costa Rica, Portugal, and Argentina.

 
“You get wonderful music from internationally renowned artists and beautiful sights of Ronda, it’s perfect.”

 
The event runs from June 6-10, with tickets costing €35 for the week, or €10 per performance.

 
They are available from the Ronda Tourist office, or at www.rondaguitarfestival.com/english/tickets/.
