The Waltons Guitar Festival is coming to Ireland on July 22nd until the 25th so those interested may like to book a cheap hostel in Dublin for the occasion.
An array of talent will be on show, as well as various genres such as folk, jazz and classical to celebrate the showpiece.
Alec O'Leary, festival director, praised the support of Waltons and the Arts Council for enabling the festival to run into its seventh year.
He added: "Never afraid to take chances the festival team have, to date, produced an impressive array of the best in live guitar music with ground-breaking collaborations from internationally acclaimed musicians, as well as from innovative new artists."
Individuals who are keen on attending the event could reserve a Dublin hostel near the National Concert Hall where the Tango & Friends attraction will be occurring.
But there are many more acts performing at various locations around the capital city, including the Public Theatre and Freemasons' Hall.
Mr O'Leary will be taking to the stage with his guitar alongside soprano Deirdre Moynihan and the festival website describes the duo as being "infectiously charming in performance", as well as possessing "skill and integrity" among many other complimentary phrases.
The twosome will perform a programme of 20th century favourites and early music, while engaging with the audience rather than just entertaining them, the website continued.
