Description

Delve into the guitar's varied contexts, from the banjo, mandolin, guitar movement of the late Victorian era to Hispanic, Pacific and North American guitar traditions up to the 1930s.

This exhibition reveals how Percy Grainger engaged with the guitar through these traditions, embracing the instrument as both performer and composer. It includes some rare and beautiful instruments on-loan from a private collection.

Visit the museum for a series of free public performances spanning the styles of pre-amplified jazz guitar, Bach lute suites and the sounds of the Brazilian cavaquinho.
