Get ready to be blown away as legendary Gypsy guitarist Lulo Reindardt, guest host/ artistic director of the International Guitar Night, hosts the world’s greatest acoustic guitarists for brilliant selections of virtuoso guitar. 

Each year, a new cast of guitar luminaries from around the world join together for special concert tours highlighting the diversity of acoustic guitar.

International Guitar Night founder Brian Gore has assembled an incredibly dynamic lineup for IGN’s 17th year of touring:  Gypsy Jazz master Reindhardt from Germany; Italy's innovative contemporary guitarist Luca Stricagnoli; brilliant young Brazilian composer/performer Chrystian Dozza, and India's ground-breaking slide guitarist Debashish Bhattacharya.

The legendary Django Reinhardt’s grand nephew, Lulo Reinhardt, is a third generation guitar master from Germany.  He has retained the incredible Reinhardt soul, speed and dexterity in addition to updating the Reinhardt repertoire. Reinhardt was first taught by his father at the age of five. At twelve, he played in the Mike Reinhardt Sextett and later co-founded the group, “Django Reinhardt and the Heartbreakers.”  He has performed on multiple tours as a soloist with International Guitar Night between 2009 and 2016, in the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and Germany.  He returns as artistic director, host and performing guitarist for the 2017 and 2018 IGN tours.

Luca Stricagnoli of Italy began playing classical guitar at the age of 10 but not long after decided to quit for three long years. After rekindling his passion he taught himself new and original playing styles. At 22 years old, Luca was signed by U.S. label “Candyrat Records”. His debut videos for the label gave him great internet success (14 million views on Facebook and seven on YouTube).  In addition to public acclaim, he began attracting major attention from famous guitar players all around the world. Now at 23, Luca is requested to perform all over the world. Luca will be making his North American debut with International Guitar Night in January/February 2017.

Chrystian Dozza is one of the leading lights of the new generation of Brazilian instrumental musicians, a brilliant young guitarist/composer whose talents have been widely displayed and rewarded. He has three recorded CDs and has won many important contests that cover all kind of guitar music. Besides performing as a solo artist, Chrystian also plays with a chamber music group, Quaternaglia Guitar Quartet, and with the guitar trio Trio Opus 12 alongside Paulo Porto Alegre and Daniel Murray. He will be making his North American debut with Interntional Guitar Night in January/February 2017.

Kolkata, India’s Debashish Bhattacharya started learning Indian music from his parents before he learned the alphabet. In his childhood he mastered many Indian classical instrumental styles as well as vocal music from different musical teachers in Kolkata.  In his twenties, he evolved a unique style of playing guitar, synthesizing selected features of various other instruments such as the Veena, Sitar, Sarod and Kannur. In 1984, he was awarded the President of India award at the age of 21. Debashish is perhaps the greatest slide guitarist in India. He has, both through creating the actual design of the instrument, and through his incredible talent and discipline, elevated the Hindustani slide guitar to be the highest evolution of slide guitar anywhere.
