Boutique in Berlin: Holy Grail Guitar Show returns – The international luthier showcase is back on October 31 & November 1 2015
What happens when a bunch of the world’s greatest guitar builders decide to put on a show? The Holy Grail Guitar Show, that’s what. In spring of 2014, a band of international guitar builders got together to put on a one-of-a-kind guitar show. By November 2014, The Holy Grail Guitar Show opened with 115 of the world’s greatest luthiers in one room creating “a new gold standard for boutique guitar shows worldwide”.
Now the Holy Grail Guitar Show is back for November 2015 at the Estrel Hotel, Berlin, Germany on October 31 & November 1. Like last year, Holy Grail 2015 will be a luthier-driven showcase for the highest quality handbuilt guitars. The show itself is devised as a non-profit-making event, with the intention of providing an affordable cooperation platform for the attending luthiers and funding for the European Guitar Builders Association (EGB) – the organisers of the show.
Visitors can meet and talk to the guitar builders, and of course try out their guitars in well-equipped demo booths. The show is complemented with a full program of showcase mini-concerts featuring endorsing artists performing on instruments by individual luthiers. There will also be an accompanying program of talks on different topics about the guitar by international experts. The full concert and lecture program will be published over the course of the summer.
Exhibiting luthiers come from as far afield as Japan, Finland, the Island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean, Argentina and of course the United Kingdom, all adding to the truly international flair of the event.
