23rd annual International Guitar Night, Wheeler Opera House, Sunday, Feb. 12, 7:30 p.m.

Whether you’re a fan of jazz, Latin music, or contemporary classical guitar, International Guitar Night, in its 23rd year of touring, has you covered.

Jocelyn Gould — Canadian jazz guitarist and vocalist and recipient of the 2021 Juno (Canadian Grammy) for Jazz Album of The Year — is passionate about the tradition of jazz guitar; she cites Grant Green, Kenny Burrell, Wes Montgomery, and Joe Pass as primary influences of the instrument.

Jesus Guerrero, Flamenco master from Spain, started playing guitar at the age of 11 years under the tutelage of master teacher José Luis Balao. His natural virtuosity with the instrument and his musical creativity have led him to be one of the most sought-after figures of the current flamenco scene.

Stephanie Jones, currently based in Germany, is an active soloist and chamber musician. She is passionate about sharing her music with others and is recognized as an innovative and musical artist.

Olli Soikkeli, from Finland, started playing guitar at age of 12. After a few years of playing, he was introduced to the music of Django Reinhardt, and gypsy jazz has been Olli’s main focus ever since.
