The 15th Ullapool Guitar Festival takes place from Friday 3rd until Sunday 5th October 2014 in the Macphail Centre at Ullapool in Scotland. With the Late night Festival club will take place in the Arch Inn West Shore Street Ullapool.
The first acts confirmed are Lulo Reinhardt Band, Brigitte DeMeyer, Carl Verheyen Band & John Jorgenson, The John Goldie Band, Woody Mann with students from Berklee College of Music in Boston and his film “Harlem Street Singer”, Clive Carroll, Hugh Burns, Wingin’ It, Allan Neave with students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Tristan Seume, and Remi Harris Trio.
The artists will be appearing in the 5 concerts over the weekend with workshops on the Saturday and Sunday mornings and a late night festival club which starts at midnight and runs till about 3am.
The Festival also has a trade show which runs everyday of the festival and which allows acoustic guitar makers to show off and sell (at very reduced prices) some of their instruments.
Tickets are priced at £150 for the weekend.
To make stewarding easier all concerts will require the ticket holder to wear/display a Festival wristband. Depending on availability, some individual concert tickets will go on sale in due course.
This year’s Festival Club will again take place in the downstairs bar at The Arch Inn. Weekend ticket holders have free entry to the Club. If you have a wristband from one of that day’s concerts, entry will cost £10 per person. If you have no wristband of any sort, entry to the club will cost £20 per person. (What greater incentive do you need to buy a weekend ticket?)
This event does not have camping but there are a number of hotels, hostels and guest houses in Ullapool which are all supporting the festival.
More information will be here when available.
