    International Guitar Night 2017 comes to Philadelphia this evening. It’s an annual tour that brings together four acoustic guitarists from around the world, in a concert of solo, duo and quartet settings.

    This year it’s headed up by Lulo Reinhardt, whose great-uncle Django Reinhardt was the leading exponent of gypsy jazz guitar in the 1930s. Lulo stopped by WHYY to talk with NewsWorks Tonight host Dave Heller.

    Lulo is joined by fellow guitarists Christiyan Dozza from Brazil, Luca Stricagnoli from Italy and Debashish Bhattacharya from India, at the Crossroads Music series in West Philadelphia at 7:30.
