THU LE (Vietnam), whose nylon string artistry stretches from classical to contemporary) was on the IGN 2022 tour. MARCO PEREIRA (Brazil), the master composer and performer, first toured with IGN in its early days and returns for his final go-round in 2024. And MINNIE MARKS (Australia), the irrepressible blues slide guitarist and singer, not only is new to IGN but will be making her North American debut.
Luca Stricagnoli is considered one of the most interesting acoustic guitarists in the world. Using up to five guitars in the same piece, modified capos, and self-conceived stratagems, Luca continually leaves his audiences in awe and wondering what’s next for the up-and- coming guitarist. In addition to his musical abilities, Luca brings an enthusiastic energy to the stage that makes him a true entertainer.
