Edmonds Center for the Arts will present International Guitar Night on Wednesday, Jan. 24, at 7:30 pm.

International Guitar Night is North America’s premier mobile guitar festival, bringing together the world’s foremost guitarists for a special evening of solos, duets and quartets. The tour’s ECA engagement will feature Germany’s Gypsy Jazz legend Lulo Reinhardt as the show’s host. He will be joined by Calum Graham, the young Canadian contemporary sensation; Marek Pasieczny, Poland’s innovative classical composer/performer, and award-winning American guitarist Michael Chapdelaine.

Lulo has built on grand-uncle Django Reinhardt’s repertoire by introducing Latin rhythms. Calum has a two-handed style that has attracted millions of YouTube viewers. Marek has performed and written for a variety of orchestras around the world, and Michael has won both the Guitar Foundation of America Classical Guitar Competition and the National Fingerstyle Championship for steel string guitar.
