Cawsand Bay Guitarfest 2022 comments

“Cawsand Magic Again Good job! I’m in for 2023” Ken Hattersley

“Thank you, Alison, for such an enriching weekend!! You have created an exceptional course; not just for the informative and educational content of learning Classical Guitar but a feast for all the senses - magical scenery, joys of the sea, immersive music and fabulous food venues.... Personally, it was an unforgettable few days....Interesting and hugely entertaining company, all round; alongside some truly captivating guitar performances! All topped off with the scenic delights of the coast and paddle boarding fun in the sea... Just wish we didn't have to wait a whole year, for the next one!! “ Mellisa Hanson

“I just wanted to say thank you again for a fabulous time at the Cawsand Guitarfest. It’s definitely an annual event in my/our calendar now. Such a lovely group of people .” Cari Aplin

“Very special weekend! Thank you,” Susan Batkin

“ Wonderful weekend! Thanks Nick Walden

“ Just a note to say how very much I enjoyed and benefited from Cawsand 3. It was a tremendous and successful effort on your behalf and so good to see “old” faces and some new. Thirty amateurs seems an ideal size and I expect there will be competition for places for next year, as the word about the course will surely continue to spread. I must add a comment on the really happy atmosphere amongst the group.” Clive McGavin

“Just a quick note to say thank you from Louise and myself for another superb weekend!
