Well done to Ben Murray the winner of Young Guitarist 2018 with Association Guitar Festival.
Six Young Guitarists worked with mentors including: Gary Lutton, Gavin Ferris, Tony Wright, Cormac Leeson, John Tracey & Paul McMordie, to produce an original piece to play live at Belfast Guitar Festival on 1st August.
The scoring between all 6 competitors was very tight but the genuine originality of the piece performed by Ben Murray was what won it on the day.
The winner went on to open for Belfast Guitar Festival in Friday 4th August 2018.
