Melbourne Guitar Show Ramps Up For 2018

Posted by: on Jun 26, 2018 | No Comments

Yes, that’s right. It’s back, for it’s fourth consecutive year. Here at The Night Vibe, we couldn’t be more excited. For when you think about it, it’s one of the biggest guitar shows in Australia and is the hot spot, for if you are looking to upgrade your gear or get the best for your axe (which you probably, like me spend all your hard earned pennies on). As well as that there are a stack of performances going down on the weekend too.

As always, this year’s Melbourne Guitar Show is going down at the Caulfield Racecourse over the weekend of August 4th and 5th with all your favourite local and international guitarists. So I hear you ask who will be coming down under to show off their impeccable talent this year? Heading up the bill this year is none other than UK guitar legend Albert Lee, who over the years has played alongside Eric Clapton, Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell and The Crickets. When asked about Lee’s ability behind the guitar, Eric Clapton had this to say. ” (He is) the ultimate virtuoso. His skill is extraordinary and he’s gifted on just about every level.”

Joining Lee in Melbourne are some of Australia’s finest in: Jeff Lang, Daniel Champagne, Nick Charles, Fiona Boyes, Shannon Bourne, Bob Spencer, Cat Canteri, Allison Ferrier amongst more announcements to come over the next few weeks.  Check out the highlights from last year’s event courtesy of Australian Musician below. If you are chomping at the bit to get down there and overload on guitar indulgence then you can pick your tickets up early here
