A Gallery Bar Special with Esperanto
A welcome return to The Old Chapel for Esperanto, an exciting Spanish Guitar/Flamenco duo featuring Mark Barnwell and Jon Boyes. Together they create a dynamic sound, combining elements of Flamenco and Latin guitar music. Expect a combination of Flamenco/Latin standards, some improvisation and a selection of contemporary numbers including a Spanish tinged version of Hotel California, Gipsy Kings numbers and Rodrigo y Gabriella.
This is the first of a string of performances across the south west to showcase their debut album Ida y Vuelta. Translating as ‘there and back again’, the phrase is used in Andalucia to describe flamenco styles that bear the hallmark of Latin American influences – a synthesis of Spanish and Hispanic rhythm and harmony.
Light tapas plate will also be available to enjoy with your drinks.
Doors, bar and Tapas plate 7.30pm, music from around 8.30pm.
Free entry, donations to Mark and Jon would be very welcome.
