The Kirkmichael International Guitar Festival has grown to become the biggest little guitar festival in the World. Once a year, guitarists and visitors from the UK, Europe, USA and Australia join the festival for a weekend of great music. Some of the world's greatest guitar players were at this year's festival, such as Tommy Emmanuel Sunday's headliner, Bobby Cochran Saturday's headliner and Martin Taylor Friday's headliner.

Tommy Emmanuel...Sunday

As visitors to the previous festivals know, Tommy is something special. He is the most successful instrumental artist in his home country of Australia with album sales alone exceeding 600,000. Since turning professional he has worked with Stevie Wonder, Sir George Martin, Tina Turner, Martin Taylor and John Denver. His live shows are legendary and last year he performed at the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games in front of millions worldwide. Visit Tommy Emmanuel's web site by clicking here.

  Martin Taylor...Friday

Described as "The acoustic guitarist of his generation" by Acoustic Guitar, Martin Taylor has earned the reputation as a world class performer and composer. The past few years have been a very busy time for Martin. In 2000 he signed a recording contract with Sony/Columbia, following in the footsteps of greats such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Miles Davis. He was also awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Paisley, The Freedom of the City of London and the British Jazz Award for the ninth time!
