House Concerts 2017

I have a very full concert season this year, which I am posting on Facebook in addition to my usual invitations by email. Please mark these concerts on your calendar, they are all quite special and feature international guitarists and composers. I hope to see you all there. Just a quick word for those who have not been here: my workshop is located in a very central and pleasant location on Mariannenplatz in Berlin-Kreuzberg, and has a large front gallery which affords a very comfortable space for the small venue concert series I host. The concerts are informal, in cafe style. They are about the music and the guitarists, which is why I build instruments in the first place.

All gallery concerts are entrance free, contributions for the artists are invited, expected and welcome. Please email me if you would like to be added to my email invitations list. My gallery can seat up to around 60 people, so please inquire first about space if you would like to bring friends. There is almost always enough room.

Alle Galerie Konzerte sind Eintritt frei, Spenden fuer den Kuenstler sind erwuenscht und herzlich willkommen. Bitte mailen Sie mir, wenn Sie eine Einladung per email erhalten moechten.
