Each tour, IGN founder Brian Gore assembles a new cast of guitar luminaries come together for a special evening of solos, duets and quartets that highlight the virtuosity and diversity within the world of acoustic guitar. For International Guitar Night's 19th year of touring, Brian has assembled another incredible, dynamic quartet: Guest host Luca Stricagnoli, Italy's explosive contemporary showman, whose arrangements of heavy-metal songs have made him huge fan-favorite, returns by popular demand.
