An annual, mobile guitar festival sponsored by Acoustic Guitar Magazine, International Guitar Night started in California more than two decades ago. Each year different guitar luminaries collaborate for original evenings of solos, duets, and quartets that highlight virtuosity and diversity in the acoustic guitar world. Lulo Reinhardt, the great-nephew of gypsy jazz legend Django Reinhardt, hosts the musicians’ circle and contributes his own Latin Swing-style to the mix. On stage he’s joined by Canadian prodigy Calum Graham, Polish classical guitarist Marek Pasieczny, and the American national fingerstyle champion Michael Chapdelaine. Don’t miss this veritable United Nations of guitar phenoms, a combination sure to result in a beautiful blend.
