Trip to SoCal – GFA 2014

My trip to California was a big success! Had an amazing time playing with the Eastman Guitar Quartet and generally hanging out at the GFA International Convention and Competition. The GFA took place this year just outside of Los Angeles at California State University, Fullerton. After the GFA I was invited to perform in a concert by the Korean American Guitar Society, which is based in Southern California.
