International Finger-Style Guitar Festival 2019 to take Hanoi’s stage this month

The Vietnam International Fingerstyle Guitar Festival (IFSGF) 2019 will take place at the Youth Theatre in Hanoi on August 17.

Fingerstyle, a new genre of solo guitar music in Vietnam, has been thriving in recent years. One simple way of describing this genre is that with only a single guitar a performer can play as if he is an entire band. Fingerstyle brings about a whole new perspective for the acoustic guitar in terms of techniques and the sounds a guitar could create. Being able to convey many styles and music genres, FS is creativity at its highest level. The player can freely develop new techniques and show their own colors…

IFSGF (Internatinal Finger-Style Guitar Festival) is series of international fingerstyle guitar concerts, an annual Asia event since 2010, with participation of famous fingerstyle guitarists from many different countries. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the concert in Asia. This is also the 5th concert edition held in Vietnam.
