A talent format searching for the next big star of the guitar
Guitar Star is Somethin’ Else’s authentic music talent format. Devised for Sky Arts – where it ran for two seasons – the series is now sold globally by Sky Vision.
The guitar is the world’s most popular instrument and the series aim is simple – to find the next great Guitar Star from any field of music. To help find the stars and mentor them on their way we recruited a series of great music legends – 10 time Grammy winner George Benson, Black Sabbath axe-man Tony Iommi, classical maestro Milos and David Bowie producer Tony Visconti.
Our guitar hopefuls took part in intimate workshops, played at iconic music venues and recorded at Abbey Road. In the final episode three finalists headed to the Latitude festival where the winning strummer was revealed with a performance in front of tens of thousands on the main stage.
