Lowden Young Guitarist of the Year 2014
To celebrate the 40
 anniversary of the Lowden Guitar, George Lowden Guitars are delighted to introduce the Young Guitarist of the Year 2014 competition. George Lowden has been designing and making his acoustic guitars in Ireland since 1974 and exporting them worldwide since 1981. A growing team of craftsmen, including 2 of his sons, work under his direct supervision building Lowden guitars by hand in Downpatrick, Co Down. Making a Lowden requires a passionate commitment to no compromise. This commitment is something we will look for in the eventual winner of the competition. The Lowden Young Guitarist of the Year gives you an opportunity to showcase your skills in front of prominent music industry figures. The competition will showcase your skills not just through social media, but also in front of a live audience for the competition winner.
