International Guitar Night
January 18th and January 19th
The world on a string
A mobile guitar festival that started in California more than two decades ago, International Guitar Night sold out its first time in Anchorage last season and returns for two shows this year. A new cast of guitar luminaries will perform solos, duets, and quartets that highlight the virtuosity and diversity in the world of acoustic guitar.
Who better to host than Italy’s explosive showman Luca Stricagnoli, who broke the internet with his arrangement of the Gorillaz song “Feel Good Inc.” on an acoustic, triple-neck guitar. On stage he’s joined by flamenco phenom Samuelito and gypsy jazz prodigy Antoine Boyer, both from France, as well as groundbreaking fretless guitarist Cenk Erdogan of Turkey. Don’t miss this veritable United Nations of guitar powerhouses.
International Guitar Night is presented by Anchorage Concert Association.
Runs approximately 2.5 hours including intermission.
BABIES — Discouraged. Ticket required for all ages.
CHILDREN — Recommended for ages 6 and older.
Disruptive patrons of any age will be expected to exit the show.
Pre-Performance Talk (1/19/2019): Enhance your experience with a free talk held one hour before the performance on Saturday, January 19th. A local expert will give insight into the type of performance and background information about the artist. On occasion, the artists may join as well. You do not need to be a ticket holder to attend this talk.

Assistive Listening Devices - Sound from the stage is broadcast directly to you by our in-house listening system (Listen Technologies LR-52000-072). This system has a standard 3.5mm output jack, so you can use your own headset or one of our stereo headsets. A limited number of T-coil compatible loop lanyards are also available.
