In celebration of International Guitar Night’s 20th Anniversary, founder Brian Gore has outdone himself with this year’s assemblage of guitar luminaries from around the world. As one of the world's finest and most creative modern fingerstyle guitar performers working today, Guitar Player calls England’s Mike Dawes “jaw dropping”: he composes, arranges and performs multiple parts simultaneously. “Olli Soikkeli is a riveting Finnish guitarist who combines astonishing dexterity and speed with pure soul in a way that places him among the worthiest current day successors to the legacy of the great Django” (Wall Street Journal). Despite the relatively young age of 28, he’s already played with such stars as Bucky Pizzarelli, Stochelo Rosenberg, Tommy Emmanuel, Andreas Öberg, Cyrille Aimee, Anat Cohen, Antti Sarpila and Marian Petrescu. Four-time Grammy winner Jim "Kimo” West has shared the stage with almost all the world’s top slack key players at one time or another. Best known as long-time guitarist for "Weird Al” Yankovic, Jim is regarded as one of the world’s foremost "ki ho’alu” or Hawaiian "slack key” guitar artists and his music has garnered many millions of streams on Spotify and Pandora. Replacing Germán López, Cenk Erdoğan has performed around the globe playing Turkish fretless guitar, and was a standout performer in IGN’s 2018-19 tour. Come for an evening spent exploring the diversity of the guitar.
