"Kultur &Gitarre"

„Kultur & Gitarre“ is an association for the promotion of music culture and guitar music and is based in the Saarland area (Germany). Their ambition is to encourage the guitar music in all its different styles, whether it’s classical music or folk, flamenco, jazz, blues or rock and they see themselves as a forum for contacts, ideas and experiments. In this way, ties are established between professional musicians, amateurs and guitar music lovers.

Various concerts-series are organised by „Kultur & Gitarre“ („Carbon & Stahl“, „Gitarre grenzenlos“), a monthly guitar matinee, competitions („Voice & Guitar“, "Gitarrentrios / Gitarrenquartette") and they offer workshops with different subjects around the guitar, not taught at music schools and colleges.
