Default Thumbs up for International Guitar Night

Tonight I caught the Denver appearance of International Guitar Night. This was my first exposure to this incredible guitar summit conference, now in its ninth year. Four guitarists performed in a much larger number of styles. If the names Lulo Reinhardt, Calum Graham, Marek Pasieczny and Michael Chapdelaine don't ring a bell, don't feel alone. You'll never forget what they can play.

During the course of two hours at the wonderful Swallow Hill Music center, I heard gypsy jazz, flamenco, blues and Brazilian, played on nylon string (once, with a slide), a hollowbody (on one song with wah-wah pedal), and plenty of harp guitar. The interplay and mastery (and sheer quantity of plucked notes) ranked right up there with the great Friday Night in San Francisco album, but with much greater variety and range.

The tour is half over, but anyone in California, Washington, Alaska and Florida still have a chance to see this ensemble through mid-March. The cast changes every year, so make a habit of this one. Highly recommended!
Guitars? A gradually changing cast, now including:
Godin Icon 2 Convertible; Godin Fifth Avenue & Kingpin; Seagull Mini Jumbo in Spruce/Walnut (given to my daughter); Simon & Patrick Woodland Mini Jumbo; and an unnamed luthier-built Jumbo in Spruce over solid Maple.
