Whidbey Island Guitar Festival

July 28 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 1:00 pm, repeating until July 28, 2019

Multi-Instrumentalist / Composer Andre Feriante brings his yearly festival back to Comforts of Whidbey in Langley! The third annual Whidbey Island Guitar Festival is a two-day event celebrating the many voices of the guitar, and it’s cousins, as presented by some of the most talented musicians of the northwest. 

Feriante’s inspiration for this festival stems from a desire to bring people of different walks of life and different interests together. It’s an opportunity for fans of one kind of music to experience other styles as well. It’s a chance to expand horizons musically, and make new friends in the process. Andre’s hope is to help people find unity, understanding, and peace through music.

Throughout the festival, guests will experience music ranging from ancient to contemporary. Genres will range from folk to flamenco fusion to Americana to classical to jazz to world music. The instruments played offer a multi-cultural look at music from around the world such as the Oud, Sarode and this year the Sitar.

This is quite possibly the only festival of it’s kind to bring such diverse styles and instruments to one stage, providing listeners the opportunity to experience music that is both familiar and also completely new to them. 

The beautiful vineyards and wine tasting room of Comforts of Whidbey Winery make the perfect setting for a magical festival. Come for the weekend, enjoy picturesque Langley in the morning and later in the evening. Indulge in wonderful cuisine at one of the many restaurants on Whidbey Island. Immerse yourself in amazing music and world class wine at the Whidbey Island Guitar Festival. 

July 27 & 28 – 1:00pm to 6:00pm each day
