Flamenco Guitarist Performing in Sussex
Flamenco Guitar Concerts in Sussex
There is a very strong community of guitarists and indeed guitar makers around the Brighton area.
I was invited to give a solo flamenco guitar recital as part of the Brighton Festival.
It was in a large church and I remember that the acoustics were so good that I did not need any microphone.

A complete show with my flamenco dancers
The Little Theatre
I worked with a theatre company in a performance of Blood Wedding by Federico García Lorca.
I do work with theatre companies for time to time and I welcome the challenge and difficulties of finding a way to incorporate my flamenco guitar playing into the play.
It is important to make sure that the music really is a party of the play and not something separate.
Worthing Pavilion Theatre
Here I worked as a soloist and accompanist for a flamenco company.
West Sussex Guitar Club
This highly professional guitar club is run by Classical Guitarist Sasha Levtov.
For many years the club has put on concerts with exceptionally talented up and coming guitarists as well as established concert performers.
In fact, students of Sasha Levtov have progressed to international careers.
The club in a very tangible way encourages new players, with events, competitions and prizes making guitar playing fascinating and rewarding to the younger players.
As such I am so very pleased to have been invited to perform there three times because I knew I would be playing in front of a demanding yet encouraging audience.
The first two were solo recitals and I gave a flamenco guitar workshop for members.
The third was a flamenco show together with my flamenco dancers.
