Two-hand contemporary guitarist Mike Dawes of England first appeared with International Guitar Night in 2016 and now returns to host the 20th Anniversary Tour. Founded by renowned Bay Area guitarist Brian Gore, this unique and intimate annual event serves as a showcase for remarkable acoustic guitar talent from around the world. Joining Dawes will be German Lopez with his sweet, high-pitched timple from the Canary Islands; the electrifying jazz virtuoso Olli Soikkeli from Finland, and Hawaiian slack key master Jim Kimo West. All four will present their latest works and then perform together, sharing musical ideas through creative collaboration and exploring the diversity of the acoustic guitar world.
