Twenty Years of Touring in the United States
Each year, International Guitar Night’s founder Brian Gore invites a new cast of guitar luminaries from around the world for special concert tours of North America showcasing the diverse talent found on the acoustic guitar.
For the 20th Anniversary Tour, Brian invited guest host Mike Dawes (England) with an incredible two-hand contemporary style. He is joined by Cenk Erdogan, fretless guitarist, with an intriguing, exotic style and an engaging on-stage personality from Turkey, electrifying jazz virtuoso Olli Soikkeli from Finland (who Fairbanks will remember from his visit here with Rhythm Future Quartet) and Hawaiian Slack Key master Jim Kimo West.
