After the CBJ Flamenco Ensemble Concert at Pistol River Concert Assocation we had a late night of delicious food, music and dance at our friend and talented Luthier’s house, Les Stansell and his wife Mary.  Visit Stansell Guitars to learn more about his amazing guitars.

At Mary & Les’ house.

The next morning we stopped by Les’ awesome guitar studio. With Grant & Terry outside of Les’ workshop.



Chris is a proud owner of a Les Stansell Guitar.



We stopped by the beach in Pistol River before we headed back to Ashland.


It was a bit rainy.




Aahhh… that was fun!

Getting closer to Ashland.

Chris & I just returned home from a fabulous trip to Ashland, Oregon.  The CBJ Flamenco Ensemble performed at Southern Oregon University’s Music Recital Hall on January 14th.  Included during our time in Ashland was a 3-Day Flamenco Dance Workshop  held at Oak Street Dance Studio, a Lecture/Demonstration for SOU’s World Music Class and Convocation Performance.  Below are a few highlights of our trip!

Tonight is the final night of the 3-Day Flamenco Dance Workshop that I’ve been teaching at Oak Street Dance Studio in Ashland, Oregon.  We’ve been working on the Alegrías palo.  Below is a pic taken after the class.  Chris accompanied the class with his beautiful guitar playing & singing.
