Spanish Guitar Night – Sat 22nd July

Sat 22nd July 7.30pm. £9.00 or £8.00 concession if booked online or £10 on the door with £9 concession.

Esperanto brings together two of the South West’s finest Spanish guitarists –Jon Boyes and Mark Barnwell. Following a chance meeting on an international flamenco forum in 2004, the two have been collaborating ever since, snatching the opportunity to play a handful of concerts each year in between their own busy schedule as soloists, and it is an honour to have them play this unique concert in CICCIC’s candle lit Memorial Hall.

For their debut at the Creative Innovation Centre CIC, Esperanto will be performing music from their CD Ida y Vuelta. Literally ‘there and back again’, Ida y Vuelta is the phrase the Andalucians use to describe the flamenco styles that bear the hallmark of Latin American influences – a synthesis of Spanish and Hispanic rhythm and harmony.

A fitting title then, to reflect the duo’s brand of guitar music which blends South American and flamenco styles, as well as betraying Mark and Jon’s early rock influences.

PromoPicDSC_0265-smalEsperanto present a showcase of traditional Spanish/Latin melodies whilst putting their own unique stamp on mainstream music made famous by household names such as the Eagles and Madonna. Infectious rhythms interlaced with sparkling harmonies and dazzling fretwork, Esperanto take us on a journey; to the sun kissed beaches of Southern Spain, to the Americas… and back again.

“When together in concert the sparks fly and I can promise an exciting gig that the audience will remember.

Esperanto always engage the audience with information about the music and little anecdotes in between numbers. It really is a wonderful and unique Spanish Guitar experience for all ages and guitar lovers” said Andrew Knutt director at CICCIC.
