Each year, International Guitar Night’s founder Brian Gore invites a new cast of guitar luminaries from around the world for special concert tours highlighting the diversity of acoustic guitar music. For IGN’s 18th year of touring, in January/February 2018, Germany’s Gypsy Jazz legend Lulo Reinhardt will return as the show’s host and will be joined by Calum Graham, the young Canadian contemporary sensation; Marek Pasieczny, Poland’s innovative classical composer/ performer, and award-winning American guitarist Michael Chapdelaine. Lulo has built on grand-uncle Django Reinhardt’s repertoire by introducing Latin rhythms. Calum has a two-handed style that has attracted millions of YouTube viewers. Marek has performed and written for a variety of orchestras around the world, and Michael has won both the Guitar Foundation of America Classical Guitar Competition and the National Fingerstyle Championship for steel string guitar.
