Award winning manufacturers Tanglewood Guitars Ireland have confirmed their attendance at The Music Show 2012, which takes place this weekend (25 & 26 Feb) at the RDS, Dublin.

Tanglewood will launch their new Sundance Anniversary guitars and T6 Acoustic Amplifiers at the Show. Already voted the Best Selling Acoustic Guitar Brand Ireland & UK (MI Pro 2011), the new models are sure to attract the multitude of Tanglewood players out there, consolidating Tanglewood Guitars’ position as the number one choice of guitarists.

“We’re delighted to welcome Tanglewood Guitars Ireland to The Music Show”, said Show Director Mark Hogan. “Tanglewood has built a reputation for superbly made and keenly priced guitars that are, first and foremost, about playability and tone. Offering the guitarist a choice of some of the finest tonewoods available, Tanglewood are a leading force in the world market and musicians across Ireland can look forward to visiting their stand at the Show this weekend”.

In addition – and to remind us that music making should also be fun, especially when you’re young – Tanglewood Guitars Ireland will be running a live young performers competition on their stand throughout the weekend. They have teamed up with Transmission Rooms Recording Studio to offer one lucky winner an Anniversary Sundance Guitar package (worth €1,000) plus a three-day recording and production package at Transmission Rooms Studio (worth €4,000).

If you’re aged between 16 and 25, can play guitar and sing, then this is an opportunity not to be missed! Use one of the Tanglewood range at the Show, performances will be uploaded to You Tube and the most-viewed video will be deemed the winner at 12pm on Friday, 30th March 2012. Get to the stand as soon as you can, as there can only be 24 contestants!!! (12 per day).

The Music Show 2012, presented by Hot Press in association with RTE 2fm, runs from February 25-26 in The RDS, Dublin.
