… at the South Bay Guitar Society Guitar Fest! So great to have had the chance to listen to some great artists, demo beautiful guitars, teach enthusiastic students about “Sounds of Italy for the classical guitar” and meet new people! And now, good old dose of catch up to do.
… After a great performance at the beautiful, historical Petit Trianon Theatre in San Jose last week, part of the 9th Annual Art Panorama organized by the Silicon Valley Art Coalition. Great artists, great ambiance, great music, great food…So grateful for being part of it. And now, practice practice practice! Ah! And last moment appearance at Vino Locale

John Beckett began making guitars in the late 1990ies and now makes a range of steel strings guitars along with two classical model: a smaller bodied classical guitar and a slightly larger model, using both cedar and spruce soundboards. All woods used are master grade; the guitars have an understated beauty and are versatile in that they are suited to different musical styles – across the “classical” repertoire.
