Alternative Guitar Summit

Seminar, Clinic, Workshop



The Alternative Guitar Summit is a New York City based one-of-a-kind festival featuring daring, innovative, non-commercial approaches to guitar.

What the press is saying:
“When Nels Cline and Fred Frith played their first public duet it didn’t always sound like guitar music. It sounded, at times, like a sanitation truck’s trash compactor,  like a collapsing carillon, like a slowed down train wreck. That’s the beauty of the Alternative Guitar festival…which features guitarists who don’t just pick and strum.”  – Jon Pareles, The New York Times
 “What a wonderful festival – Harrison outdid himself”– Fred Frith

What our audience is saying:
“Tonight was an unparalleled experience for me as a guitarist, musician, artist, father, son, husband, human being, everything. I feel that my entire spirit has been somehow healed or made more whole by this entire experience.” – Sebastien, concert-goer
