ARTS COUNCIL OF BIG SKY
The Arts Council of Big Sky concludes its winter concert season with a celebration of fingerstyle acoustic guitar at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 26, when four acclaimed musicians will share the stage at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center.
The concert, dubbed International Guitar Night, is one of the most popular touring events that showcases guitar music. It features some of the hottest players in the world, including the grandnephew of famous jazz musician Django Reinhardt, Lulo Reinhardt. Also appearing are Luca Stricagnoli, Chrystian Dozza and Debashish Bhattacharya.
This annual tour has been a forum for the world’s finest guitarists and composers to play their latest original songs and share musical ideas since its inception in 1995.
“We’re excited about bringing this annual event back to Big Sky,” said ACBS Executive Director Brian Hurlbut. “Last year’s response was overwhelmingly positive and the audience will again be amazed at the talent level of these guitarists.”
Gypsy jazz legend Lulo Reinhardt will be acting as the host for the evening. Last year, Reinhardt amazed the crowed with his impressive Gypsy-style guitar playing and it was easy to see that this unique style runs in the family.
Reinhardt will be joined by three new, incredibly dynamic musicians: Italy’s innovative contemporary guitarist Luca Stricagnoli; brilliant young Brazilian composer/performer Chrystian Dozza; and India’s ground-breaking slide guitarist Debashish Bhattacharya.
Stricagnoli’s inventive “tapping” techniques have garnered over 7 million views on YouTube. Dozza has won many prestigious awards as one of Brazil’s leading young guitarists, and Bhattacharya has invented his own technique for playing classical Indian music on the slide guitar and collaborated with musicians from around the world.
