Festival Description

Since 2000 The Ullapool Guitar Festival has taken place in various venues around Ullapool, Scotland. The Festival has a stellar lineup of some of the world’s top acoustic and electric guitar players. In all, the Festival has five concerts and three nights of amazing performances in a club where most of the players play informally. There are also workshops and a trade show featuring some of the best luthiers in the UK. Ullapool is one of the most beautiful fishing villages on the NW coast of Scotland. Expect a fabulous weekend even if you don’t play the guitar — but just love great music.

Artist feature 2011:
  • Marcio Rangel (Brazil)
    Festival performance dates — October 8 - 9, 2011
    • Marcio Rangel, a brilliant graduate of the D’Alva Stella Conservatory is an extraordinary guitarist and Brazilian composer. He composes in a synthesis of styles that range from Brazilian guitar school to blues, from jazz to classical, jazz, samba, bossa, and flamenco. An extraordinary left-handed guitar player, Rangel plays a normal “right handed” guitar turned around, thus creating an original sonority — more powerful in the bases and voluptuous in the highs. This unique style creates new possibilities of chord fingerings and sounds. Rangel’s compositions are of a rare beauty and lyrical quality. He has been a guest, as interpreter and composer, in several festivals internationally. For more information visit
