Announcing Morris Fingerpicking Day 2023
Morris Fingerpicking Day 2023 (FPD 2023) will be held on Saturday, March 25, 2023 at the Red Brick Warehouse No. 1 Hall in Yokohama.
Although the prevalence of Corona virus is far from over, we have decided to take every possible precaution to ensure that the event will be held for the first time in four years.
Details including guest performers are yet to be determined and will be announced on the Moridaira Musical Instruments website and Social Media once they are finalized.
New regional qualifiers (live judging) were to be held in Tokyo (hosted by Ikebe Gakki), Osaka (hosted by Miki Gakki), and Fukuoka (hosted by Shimamura Gakki) to select contestants for FPD 2023 in addition to those who had the already passed qualifiers for FPD 2020.
However, after extensive discussions between the organizers of the regional qualifiers and Moridaira Musical Instrument, the organizer of the FPD 2023 Competition, it has been regrettably decided to cancel the regional qualifying rounds again this year.
Therefore, the FPD 2023 Contest will be held only for those who are scheduled to participate in FPD 2020.
We would like to extend our sincere apologies to those who have been looking forward to this event, including those who have been preparing to participate in the qualifiers.
If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact the FPD Management Office
Thank you & best regards.
