Stoneyport’s International Guitar Night – UK tour / Scottish dates

15 years ago IGN founder, Californian Brian Gore, decided to create an annual tour featuring three or four world-class guitarists. Since then the annually changing show has become a popular item in the North American touring calendar and has toured the UK roughly annually since 2007.

This year’s UK tour features …

Lulo Reinhardt (Germany), great-nephew of jazz legend Django Reinhardt, is one of the foremost instrumental voices in modern Gypsy music. ” …one thing is certain: Lulo is a fantastic musician, worthy of the Reinhardt name” (★★★★★ London Evening Standard).  Lulo and his Latin Swing Project played the Platform quite successfully on their last tour in Oct 2014.

Mike Dawes (England) has renowned international musicians including Steve Vai, Gotye and James Valentine (Maroon 5) praising his prowess.  To quote the Maroon 5 guitarist, “What’s going on? It’s beautiful!” …He’s among the very best in the world. He’s exceptional!” (Justin Hayward, The Moody Blues).  Mike plays in Justin Hayward’s band.

Andre Krengel (Germany) has developed a unique style of playing becoming a leading guitar player in Germany. The German press call him “the traveller between cultures” and “the guitar wizard with magic hands”.

Brian Gore (USA) …No longer ’emerging’, Brian has become a member of the community of guitar masters with whom he has toured. Brian writes songs, not ‘tunes’, fully developed stories told with six steel strings and a passion rarely seen instrumentally or lyrically. (Jay Howlett, KKUP Radio’s “Friday Folk Off” with David Stafford.)
“With the International Guitar Night, Brian Gore has created a new niche for the myriad of styles that can be played by the unaccompanied acoustic guitar, as well as marvelous opportunity for virtuosos to interact and learn from one another onstage.” – Michael Parrish, (Dirty Linen)

The show features solos, duets, trios and ensemble piece.
