As festivities are at an end and the dark nights continue what could be better to invigorate the soul than a brilliant live performance by the Spanish guitarist and composer Eduardo Niebla, who embarks on tour next month with his exhilarating mix of flamenco jazz fusion. This is really a shorthand to the wealth of influences that resonate from his guitar from his collaborations with musicians from around the globe, but one thing for sure is that it’s exquisite guitar playing of the highest level.
The tour starts on Sunday 12th February 2017 at Mac Arts Galashiels followed by: Hermitage Hall Hawick (13 Feb), Eyemouth Hippodrome (14 Feb), Robin Lane Pudsey (15 Feb), Anvil Arts Basingstoke (10 March) and 4 rural touring dates at Brigg Live Arts (30 Mar), Epworth Thurlow Pavilion (31 Mar), Swanland Village Hall (1 April) and Goxhill Memorial Hall (2nd April) and the Feile na Bealtaine Festival in Dingle at the end of April. Accompanying Eduardo are guitarists Matthew Robinson / Daniel Lopez. (See full details below)
This tour gives Eduardo an opportunity to preview music from his highly anticipated new album, which he is now recording at his North Yorkshire studios, as well as his back catalogue spanning four decades. All a far cry from his early childhood in Tangiers Morocco and Girona Spain where he grew up, the 7th of 11 children. And musically too Eduardo has always been moving on; starting out learning flamenco on the streets, then through his teenage years exploring jazz and symphonic rock where he hit stardom with his cult band Atila. And this curiosity to explore led to Eduardo’s move to London in the late 70s where he performed with Mother Gong at Glastonbury and worked with Tom Newman producer. Since then he has collaborated with musicians across the globe including: sitar maestro Nishat Khan, the late Lol Coxhill (sax), Palestinian oud player Adel Salameh, trance phenomenon Juno Reactor and pop musicians George Michael & Craig David. And latterly Eduardo has been working with the Dante and Pavao String Quartets and local choirs on new works with a distinctly classical vibe, so the creativity continues.
In this world of changing times the power of music to connect is a wonderful thing so catch Eduardo Niebla in concert and expect to be moved.
Join us for St Valentines Day and a fabulous evening of superb guitar music with Eduardo Niebla. Sharing platters of delicious seasonal appetisers will be available from the bar.
