This year the organisers of the highly popular KPMG Castle Nights events have asked the Music Sub-Committee of the Guernsey Arts Commission to curate one of the musical stages at Castle Cornet in the form of an Acoustic Showcase for Guernsey Talent.
The nights take place on Friday 15th, 22nd and 29th July and 5th August at Castle Cornet and feature a range of entertainment around the castle grounds, all free of charge.
The GAC’s Acoustic Showcase will feature a range of new and veteran musicians spanning styles from pop to folk to punk between 1900 and 2030 each Friday evening.
Russ Fossey, chair of the Music Sub-Committee, says: “We are pleased to have been given this opportunity to showcase a variety of acoustic players. There is a unique ambiance in Castle Cornet which provides an experience unlike any other in Guernsey for both the musicians and audience.”
