“Captures the essence of a movement”
– Del Vezeau, Canadian Guitar Festival
Acoustic Uprising is a grass roots story. The story of a community coming together to fund a film around a shared passion. To tell their story and to celebrate the guitar lifestyle. The film was shot in 10 countries; interviewed 100s of academics, performers and fans; and is the result of 3 years of nurturing an authentic relationship with the FingerStyle community.
The movie looks at the innovative new approach to acoustic guitar known as FingerStyle. Recently this style has risen to prominence on Youtube and social media, startling and delighting millions due to it’s mesmerising manipulation of the ubiquitous acoustic guitar. Through the viral nature of Youtube and the transcendent nature of their music— FingerStyle has ignited a guitar community like no other. A community of guitarists who share a passion for pushing the boundaries of the instrument and themselves to ever greater heights.
