The world on a string

Friday-Saturday, Jan. 17-18, 2020

After back-to-back sold out shows, the mobile guitar festival and fan favorite International Guitar Night returns to Anchorage with a new cast of guitar luminaries. They will perform solos, duets, and quartets that highlight the virtuosity and diversity in the world of acoustic guitar.

For the 20th Anniversary Tour, a phenomenal lineup awaits you: Mike Dawes hosts from England with his incredible two-hand contemporary style. He is joined by electrifying jazz virtuoso Olli Soikkeli from Finland (who thrilled Alaska audiences in 2017 with his group Rhythm Future Quartet), groundbreaking fretless guitarist Cenk Erdogan of Turkey, and Hawaiian Slack Key master Jim “Kimo” West.

Don’t miss this veritable United Nations of guitar powerhouses.
