All together: Grant Ruiz, Monica Morales, Terry Longshore, Me, Chris Burton Jacome.  I’m looking forward to the next gathering!!!



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!

An unforgettable trip to Pistol River.  Thank you to Pistol River Concert Association, Stansell Guitars & Les & Mary Stansell.  What a wonderful time!!!

After the very successful CBJ Flamenco & Friends concert at SOU on Friday, January 14th, we traveled to Pistol River the following day for an evening concert with Pistol River Concert Association.  While on the road we took a pit stop to explore the Redwoods in Northern California.  Here are a few pictures from our time there.

Flamenco in Ashland, Oregon

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!
