International Guitar Night

. May 16, 2012.

Take four of the best guitar players from around the globe, put them on the same stage and let them jam — you now have a six-string fan's dream. But it's also the dream of Brian Gore, the versatile virtuoso from San Francisco, who organized International Guitar Night, a tour that brings together himself, England's Adrian Legg, Germany's Lulo Reinhardt and Brazil's Marco Pereira. Although their styles vary greatly — from lightning-fast fingerstyle to Brazilian waltzes — they all have one thing in common: they can miraculously blend those very different styles together. 8pm. $30. 316 S. Main St. 734-761-1818. www.theark.org
