Upcoming guitar performances

If you are performing, or know of a good upcoming classical guitar or jazz guitar performance in south Florida, post it here.

Just for the sake of it, although it is in the calendar, remember Miami will have two (2) Guitar Festivals (or equivalent activities) at about mid June. One will be at UM and the other at the Kendal Campus of MDC...Just for the record.

Enjoy your playing!
