Now in its 24th year, this season’s IGN features three favorites and an exciting newcomer. Luca Stricagnoli (Italy), the amazing acoustic rock interpreter, will be returning for the 4th time. The nylon string artistry of Thu Le (Vietnam) stretches from classical to contemporary. Master composer and performer Marco Pereira (Brazil), first toured with IGN in its early days and returns for his final round in 2024. Joining them is IGN newcomer Minnie Marks (Australia), an irrepressible blues slide guitarist and singer making her North American debut.
