International Guitar Night offers some of the best guitar players in the world the opportunity to collaborate and showcase their latest compositions.

Founder Brian Gore had the dream to bring together an array of guitarists from around the world, with different backgrounds and styles and provide them with a forum to share their musical ideas.

Each touring season, Gore invites a new cast of guitar luminaries to join him for a special evening of solo, duets and quartets that highlight the virtuosity and diversity within the world of acoustic guitar.

Joining Gore onstage at the Port Theatre Wednesday (Nov. 7), are D’Gary, an open tuning master from Madagascar; Clive Carroll, a bright new star from England; and Miguel de la Bastide, flamenco master from Canada (by way of Trinidad and Spain).

D’Gary’s rootsy style is based on traditional music from Madagascar.

Carroll is highly regarded as one of the best young guitarist in the British Isles, with his mixture of Celtic, blues and contemporary styles. Versatile, dynamic, and a little shy, he is a natural on stage.

Miguel de la Bastide has been involved with flamenco for more than 25 years.

He is one of the few guitarists outside of Spain who mastered the techniques and the knowledge of the flamenco guitar.

International Guitar Night begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets $32; $28/members; $17/students.

Please call 754-8550 for more information.
