Presented by Massey Theatre

For its 25th annual tour, Brian Gore has assembled a lineup of 3 exciting new guitarists making their debuts to join one of IGN’s all-time favourites.  LULO REINHARDT (Germany) is well known to IGN audiences. The grand-nephew of legendary Django Reinhardt, Lulo plays Latin Swing music. ALEXANDRA WHITTINGHAM (Britain) is a dynamic classical guitarist with a repertoire ranging from the classics to contemporary composers. NIWEL TSUMBU (Democratic Republic of The Congo) has kept his unique Congolese percussive style alive over the past twenty five years living in Ireland. SÖNKE MEINEN (Germany) is a leading Contemporary Fingerstyle guitarist, mixing the incredible dexterity of his high-speed compositions with sensitive ballads.

Featured Artists:

Lulo Reinhardt, hailing from the renowned Reinhardt family, is a guitar virtuoso celebrated for his Latin Swing style deeply rooted in Sinti tradition. From his early years influenced by his father’s eclectic record collection to leading bands like I Gitanos and his own Latin Swing Project, Lulo’s journey has been marked by musical exploration and cultural outreach. With numerous albums, international collaborations, and ventures like documenting Sinti and Roma migration, Lulo continues to innovate.

Alexandra Whittingham, a prodigious classical guitarist and composer, emerged from Chetham’s School of Music and the Royal Academy of Music with accolades and a distinctive style. Her debut album “My European Journey” not only topped charts but also spotlighted lesser-known composers of the nineteenth century, blending passion for music history with virtuosity. With a massive online following and performances worldwide, including prestigious venues and orchestral collaborations, Alexandra’s star continues to rise.

Niwel Tsumbu, a Congolese-born guitarist based in Ireland, defies musical boundaries with a fusion of jazz, classical, rock, and African rhythms. From his early exposure to diverse musical traditions to collaborations with global icons like Rhiannon Giddens and Grammy-winning performances, Niwel’s virtuosic guitar work and emotive compositions captivate audiences worldwide. His fluidity across genres and instruments solidify his place as a musical trailblazer, promising unforgettable performances in this upcoming U.S. tour with the International Guitar Night.

Sönke Meinen, an acclaimed guitarist, transcends conventions with his one-man guitar performances, blending folk, classical, pop, and jazz influences into a captivating musical journey. From fiery guitar displays to soul-stirring ballads, Sönke’s performances resonate with audiences worldwide, punctuated by humorous anecdotes and a relaxed stage presence.
