‘Spellbinding flamenco jazz, bursting with obvious passion and verve.’ The Spectator

Hailed by the Guardian for his 'exquisite guitar' playing, Eduardo Niebla appears with his internationally acclaimed guitar duo (featuring Carl Herring) to present an amazing repertoire of “stunning flamenco jazz” (The Sound) from his latest albums. Continually seeking out new musical terrain, Niebla has traversed the worlds of classical, pop, jazz and world music, collaborating with such diverse partners as sitar maestro Nishat Khan, George Michael, Lol Coxhill, the Dante String Quartet and Craig David. The concert will showcase pieces from Eduardo’s eagerly awaited new album (his 24th), as well as revisiting his back catalogue spanning over four decades – all original compositions. A spellbinding evening of passion, verve and fleet-fingered virtuosity from one of the most potent forces in flamenco jazz fusion.
