La Guitarra 2011

September 15, 2011

The CBJ Flamenco Quartet had a phenomenal time performing in the Spanos Theater at Cal Poly Performing Arts Center as part of La Guitarra Festival 2011 in San Luis Obispo, California.  The prestigious La Guitarra Festival is an AMAZING three -day classical guitar festival comprised of guitar concerts, master classes and more. It was an honor and a privilege to be a part of such an incredible group of artists.

I get told quite frequently that I’m a lucky person and I agree 100%.  I am continually surrounded by amazingly gifted artists and amazing people!  It was such a pleasure working with these three incredibly talented flamencos: 

Guitarist, Chris Burton Jacome, Cantaor, Jesus Montoya, Bailaor, Martin Gaxiola.

Thank you to Russ De Angelo and La Guitarra Festival California. The CBJ Flamenco Ensemble will be touring throughout New Mexico, Texas & California in October.  Make sure and visit my website for upcoming projects, workshops and performances.
