FlamencoAustin is a dream come true.  And it’s this Thursday!

In 16 years presenting guitar I’ve seen just a few transcendent artists I’d call true superstars.  Performers of such extraordinary quality, they are in a class all their own.  Grisha is one of them.

In my teens I spent a summer in Spain.  I’ll never forget the energy, the spectacle, the food, the music and dance of my first flamenco show in Sevilla.

My dream for FlamencoAustin is to bring that rich feast for the senses right here to Austin.

I hope you’ll join us.  Call 512-474-LONG for tickets ($27-$52).

We’ve put together an amazing flamenco party (6:30pm) with free tapas by Málaga Tapas and Bar – chef Alejandro Duran will be there personally serving his famous dishes.  Twin Liquors has selected Spanish wines, and we’ll even have live flamenco music and dance by Pilar Andújar.

We also have a few seats left for the full authentic Spanish dinner, prepared by chef Maria Fernanda Candil, that we’ll serve in the Kodosky Lounge (also 6:30).  Simplify your evening, join us for dinner, and you’ll still have time to check out Pilar’s show on the terrace if you like!

Grisha will take the stage at 8PM in Dell Hall.  I can’t say enough about this supremely gifted guitarist.  Learn more about his program, and see some astonishing videos, here.

FlamencoAustin has been two years in the making.  I can’t wait to share the debut of this series with you Thursday night.  Austin to Andalucía at the speed of sight and sound.
