THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!
The Museum of Making Music presents International Guitar night (IGN) on January 22, 2013. International Guitar Night is an annual musical event brings together the world's foremost acoustic guitarists to perform their latest compositions and exchange musical ideas in a public concert setting. This will be the fifth year the Museum has hosted the event, which travels across the U.S and Canada. Each tour, IGN founder Brian Gore invites a new cast of guitar luminaries to join him for special evenings of solos, duets and quartets that highlight the virtuosity and diversity within the world of acoustic guitar.
For the 2013 winter tour, International Guitar Night founder Brian Gore will be joined by Scotland's Martin Taylor, Solorazaf from Madagascar, and Celso Machado. This concert is a particularly lyrical version of International Guitar Night, with a nice mix of playing and singing.
This concert is presented by the Museum of Making Music in partnership with the City of Carlsbad Cultural Arts Office and is made possible by the Carlsbad Library and Arts Foundation's Robert H. Gartner Cultural Endowment Fund.
San Francisco guitar poet Brian Gore has a reputation as one of the most interesting and influential performers of "the next generation" in acoustic guitar. His style offers strikingly beautiful tone and dynamics, and he draws much of his inspiration from myth and modern literature. His recent project, Santa Cruz in Song and Image, is a remarkable multimedia collaboration with illustrator Bill Russell built around 10 songs inspired by Santa Cruz, CA. There's an iBook with text and images designed to enhance the listening experience, and the album includes illustrated postcards, also evoking Santa Cruz.
British jazz guitarist Martin Taylor has recorded over 25 albums and enjoyed a musical career spanning over 30 years. This internationally acclaimed artist has received 14 British Jazz Awards, a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award, and an MBE for "Services To Music" (presented by her Majesty the Queen). Taylor's most recent projects include a release with his group Spirit of Django, Last Train to Hauteville, and a solo album Double Standards.
Solorazaf is a French-Malagasy guitarist and singer who has toured with legendary artists like Miriam Makeba and Nina Simone. Named a "master of the 12/8 saleg rhythm" by Acoustic Guitar Magazine, this talented guitarist mixes complex guitar patterns with his singing to produce a sound that is highly rhythmic and smoothly flowing. He also adds foot percussion, using homemade "stompboxes". This past summer saw him release Solonaives + Sculptures with GAD, a double disk albumshowcasing his African roots mixed with jazz and blues.
Celso Machado is a Brazilian guitarist living near Vancouver, British Columbia. Drawing on his thorough study of classical guitar, Celso composes for guitar and ensemble. His remarkably innovative compositions are infused with a rich knowledge of the traditional music of Brazil: samba, chôro, baião, frêvo etc. Published by Editions Henry Lemoine in Paris, his compositions are performed and recorded worldwide. While Celso's music is rooted in Brazilian rhythmic and melodic styles, it also reflects his incurable fascination with other world music traditions.
