    Thu Le
    I am an International award-winning classical guitarist and certified guitar teacher. My love affair with the guitar began at the age of four thanks to my father, Le Hanh, At the age of five I gave my first public performance in Vietnam under his tutorship. I passed the entrance examination for the National Conservatory of Music, Hanoi at the age of only seven, making me the youngest ever student to be admitted to this prestigious establishment. To further enhance and develop my talent, I took master classes with world-renowned guitarists such as Manuel Barrueco, Nikita Koshkin, Hubert Kaeppel, Pavel Steidle, Thomas Offermann, Marcin Dylla, Denis Azabagic, Judicael Perroi, and Gabriel Bianco.

    My passion for guitar has seen me perform solo as well as hosting a series of successful master classes across several continents including North America, UK and Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. And of course, I stay close to my cultural roots performing regularly in Vietnam, my beloved country of birth.

    In 2018 I performed and held master classes at the prestigious Guitar Federation of America (GFA) convention held in Louisville, USA. In addition, I was a performing artist and jury member at the 2018 Alma Hanoi International Guitar Festival.  I also perform regularly at the famous Joaquin Rodrigo Guitar Festival in Spain and the renowned International Guitar Festival in Kolkata, India. Besides my solo career, I also collaborate and perform with orchestras, string quartets, vocalists, violinists, flutists, and in guitar duo.

    Minnie Marks
    Minnie Marks is not just some blazingly electrified guitar-playing freak of nature. She is also a rare and triple threat: Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.    Relentlessly performing across the globe, equipped with an old Goldtop in her hands and a revolutionary Farmer Foot Drum at her feet; Marks consistently pushes musical limits with her mind-blowing, dynamic guitar wizardry and her insanely powerful voice, that roars out her truth through song as if her own life depended on it. And, if that’s not enough, she simultaneously, creates bone marrow-shaking grooves with spare limbs on her Foot Drum kit. Finally, all three beasts are married together to forge a mammoth-sized wall of sound. From winning the world-renowned ‘Bluesfest Busking Competition’ in 2011, to taking out the People’s Choice Award’ at both Blues At Bridgetown and Nannup Music Festival, plus earning the winning place of ‘Best Guitarist’ for the Open Arms Festival competition, Marks is no stranger on the block.

    Here’s what a few master musicians have to say….

    “Minnie Marks, she plays guitar like nothing I’ve ever seen before, she sings like
    Janis Joplin, she’s going to blow the world apart.” – Kim Churchill

    “I’m shakin’ in my boots. One word, PRODIGY!” – Sarah McLeod (The

    “One of the finest young guitar players in the country” – Julz Parker (Hussy Hicks)

    “Damn, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a female shred harder than you in the flesh” –
    Dallas Frasca

    Over the past twelve years, Marks has paved her musical journey around the world with three studio albums and one live album recorded in Stuttgart, Germany. The award-winning troubadour shows no sign of slowing down. Her new twelve-track album will be out for release in 2022. In 2024, Minnie will make her North American debut with International Guitar Night.
