Björn Thoroddsen’s fourth Guitarfest was held in November 2009 and was a huge success. At the concert, Björn invited several of Iceland’s top guitarists to perform some of their favourite songs. The artists on stage spanned the age range from 22-79, played all possible styles of music, and it safe to say that the festival presented a great overview of Icelandic guitar-playing for the last 50 years. The Guitarfest turned into three sold-out events, and at the first concert, guitarist Ólafur Gaukur Þórhallsson was awarded the Golden Guitar Pick for his contribution to guitar playing and teaching in Iceland.
