International Guitar Night

Friday, February 20, 2015 at 8 p.m.

For their 2015 North American tour, IGN founder Brian Gore will be joined by classical innovator and fellow Californian Andrew York; Brazilian jazz master Diego Figuierido and contemporary Iranian-Canadian steel string wizard Maneli Jamal.  Andrew is a Grammy winner both for his work with the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet and for his own brilliant compositions.  Diego is one of the most sought-after jazz artists in the United States and around the world, and Maneli has won countless music competitions around the world including placing in the top 3 at Guitar Idol, a worldwide guitar competition held in London, UK. 

Diego Figueiredo is considered one of the most talented guitar players in the world today. He is the winner of several important competitions including the Montreux Jazz Competition and the VISA Prize. Andrew York is one of today's most visible and innovative classical guitar composers, winning a GRAMMY with the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet during their sixteen-year partnership. Maneli Jamal is a young artist, who gained a sense of musical maturity rarely seen among his peers especially when he transformed his nomadic life experiences into musical movements using extended guitar techniques. There aren't many players in his style that have Jamal's balance of power and sensitivity, nor his breadth of ideas. San Francisco guitar poet Brian Gore is gaining a reputation as one of the most interesting and influential performers of "the next generation" in fingerstyle guitar. A musical romantic, his compositions draw inspiration from myth and modern literature.
