.strandberg* Guitars & Uppsala International Guitar Festival competition 2020

The winners can be found here!

The .strandberg* Guitar competition is a collaboration between the Uppsala International Guitar Festival and Strandberg Guitars and offers an online interaction opportunity to complement the festival that takes place in Uppsala, Sweden, in October each year.

In light of the 2020 pandemic, the format is changed slightly, but we are equally excited to announce our competition, which will be open not only to guitarists, but also to bassists!
We have a long standing relationship with the festival, which has featured performances and workshops by .strandberg* artists Jose Macario, Sarah Longfield, Jacky Bastek and Gustavo Assis-Brasil. For full details on the festival, visit http://www.uppsalagitarrfestival.se/

Description: Hi, my name is Kay and I’m a musician from Norway. I love traditional folk music, and since I am from Telemark in Norway, our styles of traditional folk music is so similar that I decided that I wanted to contribute but with a little different approach. I looked into some old versions of Polska, and decided to use a chord progression from a song with two fiddles. I switched the theme to minor and added a Mellotron and some pipe organs to add texture and mood along with a more modern lead guitar. Enjoy! Best Regards Kay
