The Royal Albert Hall hosts its first full-scale music festival of its kind this autumn when BluesFest 2013 takes over the building, and partnering with them this year is the North American Guitar. The UK’s home of the finest luthiery will be situated in the Coda room of the Royal Albert Hall for the duration of the festival with some exclusive performances and displaying some of their instruments.
The festival runs from 29 October – 1 November and will feature some of music’s leading names including Robert Plant, Bobby Womack, Chris Rea, and Van Morrison celebrating music inspired by the blues.
To celebrate this partnership, the North American Guitar is giving away a Carter Poulsen J model in Indian rosewood and German spruce worth £5,250, plus two tickets to the festival. To be in with a chance of winning this prize, visit: http://thenorthamericanguitar.com/bluesfest
