Exploring virtually every aspect of the guitar’s personality since 1999, the New York Guitar Festival has presented many of the world’s most influential guitarists at iconic NYC venues large and small. From multi Grammy-winners to emerging artists, NYGF performers have included masters of the classical repertoire as well as blues, jazz, pop, indie, folk and Americana as well as sounds of Central and South America and genre-defying innovators.         


The New York Guitar Festival is made possible by the generosity of a grant from the Augustine Foundation.
