The Tasmanian Guitar Experience

The Tasmanian Guitar Experience is now available again, but with a maximum of 12 people per concert for the time being.

Spend your Saturday night at an intimate concert and workshop tour in the home studio of renowned Tasmanian guitarist/composer Cary Lewincamp. Cary is one of Tasmania’s most loved musical icons. His widely acclaimed music is often identified as the “sound of Tasmanian life”. His instrumental compositions are a reflection of his feelings for his home and family, and of the environment and lifestyle of his much loved Tasmania.

People from around the world have fallen in love with his music and it has become an integral part of their lives. Cary hand makes stringed instruments from Tasmanian timbers and facilitates bespoke small group guitar courses in his workshop at the foothills of kunanyi /Mount Wellington. Cary plays a hand crafted 7 string Huon Pine guitar.

What you will do

5pm: Guests arrive and are welcomed into Cary’s beautiful home in the foot hills of kunanyi / Mount Wellington. They will arrive via the rambling garden and greeted with a complimentary beverage. Guests will then experience an intimate 1hr concert in the artist’s studio.  There, surrounded by hand made instruments, they will hear the stories of Tasmanian people and places that inspire Cary’s music. There will be time for questions about the music and the guitars. Cary will also share his experiences and knowledge of his island home throughout the evening. Guests will then have a optional  tour with Cary of his luthiery workshop where his  instruments are crafted from local timbers and  where small group guitar and ukulele courses are facilitated.

7pm: Guest depart.

 A truly Tasmanian experience not to be missed.

This experience was the absolute highlight of our trip to Hobart! Cary and his family and wonderful hosts that make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. Cary is an incredible musician and storyteller who shares his passion for music with all his guests. We had the most fabulous time and we cannot wait to come back to Hobart to experience it again in the future!

Dear Cary,
We just wanted to personally thank you for sharing your musical gift in a lovely setting with us. We thoroughly enjoyed listening to your compositions and stories and would have loved to have spent more time with you asking many questions about your musical experience. Will definitely come and see you at Salamanca next time we’re in Hobart.
 
Best regards Dianne & Carlo.
