International Guitar Night (IGN) is North America’s premier mobile guitar festival. Since its beginning, IGN has brought together the world’s foremost acoustic guitarist composers to perform their latest original compositions and exchange musical ideas in a public concert setting. This year, occasional IGN guest Lulo Reinhardt (Django Reinhardt’s grand nephew) will be the artistic director, host and a guitarist on stage with the cast of guitar luminaries including Italy’s innovative contemporary guitarist Luca Stricagnoli; brilliant young Brazilian composer/performer Chrystian Dozza; and India’s ground-breaking slide guitarist Debashish Bhattacharya.
The Center’s commitment to Enhancing Arts Education
IGN will be performing in and working with local schools as a part of The Center’s ongoing commitment to Artist Residencies. Artist Residencies are supported by Gayle Marie and in part, with funds for International Guitar Night and Las Cafeteras provided by the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF), the Idaho Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
