8th Dutch Fretless Guitar Festival – May 2019 announcement

Willem Niehorster

Willem Niehorster (pictured above) has announced plans for the eighth DFGF VIII (Dutch Fretless Guitar Festival) to be held in Amsterdam, in the Netherlands, EU.

In his own words….

Today I had a meeting with Emiel Scholsberg. He is a Dutchman that took guitar lessons from Scott McGill. And that’s how he got to know me.

He is very enthusiastic about the DFGF 8! He also brought along the guy that is the importer of Vigier here in NL. This man has a lot of connections in the music business and is also very interested in helping.

The plan is to organize the festival either Friday 11- Saturday 12 May or Friday 17- Saturday 18 of May.

This time in Amsterdam at the Q-Factory

Q factory also has a hotel and cafe, plus we will be holding workshops on the Saturday morning.

Anyone wishing to attend should contact Willem via the Unfretted Facebook page.
