SET against the backdrop of High Barn in Great Bardfield, the second annual High Barn Guitar Festival promised to be an afternoon and evening to delight all guitar enthusiasts - and it delivered.
In between the afternoon workshops by classical, blues and folk guitarists, festival-goers browsed around exhibitors' stands and tried out guitars from well-known brands or local private makers.
In the evening a stellar line-up of guitarists displayed their skills in a diverse concert of music.
Festival spokesman, Anna Bass, said: "It was a fantastic event and attracted even more people than our first one this time last year. I was running around being busy all day as people came to see the music and the stalls we had. It was very exciting."
