Rotosound endorsees to host master class in UK
(Dave Molter | Posted 2010-07-05)
Although best known for its bass strings, used by high-profile players such as Who bassist John Entwhistle and Chris Squire of Yes, British string manufacturer Rotosound also has an impressive stable of guitarists who endorse Rotosound Strings. Two of their endorsees and exceptional guitarists, Guthrie Govan and Alex Hutchings, are to host master classes at the forth coming Cheltenham Guitar Festival 2010.
Celebrated cult guitarist Guthrie Govan will play an exclusive and an open master class, and the extraordinary guitarist and highly gifted composer Alex Hutchings will be playing a jazz rock master class. Both artist appearances are sponsored by the British-based guitar, bass and acoustic string manufacturer Rotosound.
Guthrie Govan is widely regarded as one of the most innovative and dazzling guitarists to emerge in modern times. He is known for his virtuoso command of the electric guitar and his proficiency in various styles from out and out rock, to jazz-fusion and blues.
Alex Hutchings (pictured) is described as an inspired guitarist, possessing an immaculate technique that places him in a different league to his contemporaries. His playing has an authenticity and passion that is often lacking in the modern approach.
The Cheltenham Guitar Festival is delivered by the International Guitar Foundation (IGF), an educational charity whose activities work to improve the life experience of thousands of everyday people. The Cheltenham Guitar Festival, previously the Bath Guitar Festival, is Europe’s biggest summer school and now in its eighteenth successful year. For 2010 it has moved to the stunning Park campus of the University of Gloucester in the beautiful spa town of Cheltenham. The festival runs from 26th July to 6th August 2010 and continues to have a fantastic line up of workshops, master classes and concerts presenting some off the best established and emerging guitarists in the world
