The Whidbey Island Guitar Festival is a major part of the inspiration for One Moon Studio. In fact, one could look at One Moon Studio as more a world wide expansion of the Festival.
Created by Multi-Instrumentalist / Composer Andre Feriante, this years festival will be held for the first time at the Whidbey Island Center for the Arts in Langley! A partnership with WICA this year, the three day event celebrates the many voices of the guitar, and it’s cousins, as presented by some of the most talented musicians of the northwest.
Feriante’s inspiration for this festival stems from a desire to bring people of different walks of life and different interests together. It’s an opportunity for fans of one kind of music to experience other styles as well. It’s a chance to expand horizons musically, and make new friends in the process. Andre’s hope is to help people find unity, understanding, and peace through music.
Throughout the festival, guests will experience music ranging from ancient to contemporary. Genres will range from folk to flamenco fusion to Americana to classical to jazz to world music. The instruments played offer a multi-cultural look at music from around the world.
This is quite possibly the only festival of it’s kind to bring such diverse styles and instruments to one stage, providing listeners the opportunity to experience music that is both familiar and also completely new to them.
