Profile

Genre: Acoustic / Blues / Latin

Location Warwickshire, Midlands, UK

 Biography

Flamenco in the Midlands... .. I live in the beautiful town of Warwick.
I teach & perform Flamenco & Blues & also work part time with adults with Autism, learning difficulties & limited mobility. This is also very rewarding & allows me to practice music therapy.
 History : My mother is of Latin origin & was born in Caracas, Venezuela, South America. My father is English.
Studied electric Chicago Blues, went onto fingerstyle Missisippi Delta Blues Headed for Spain for a 6 month tour of Andalucia, home of Flamenco... I returned to England 2 years later
Toured & busked every city in Andalucia after having met up with a friend (Spanish guitar's & Mandolin). After the three month tour settled in the beautiful mountain region of Granada...'The Sierra Nevada'. Studied Flamenco with a local in exchange for chopping wood, and also learned bits along the way during the busking tour, from Gypsies & Spanish folk.

 
 

I was often asked to play accompaniment while the local's would sing... Paco, a mountain goat shepherd with his gravelly heartfelt & often humourous voice & Gypsy Jose who had a sweet voice with such emotional depth it would penetrate through your soul! .. To the men and women whose soul shines through their eyes and whose heart is on their lips... Like a Solea .. ..
