Flamenco on fire
IF YOU want to hear live music in a beautiful, acoustically inspiring venue, then Bangalaow Catholic Church is that venue. If you want to hear Spanish guitar played at its beautiful, dynamic best, then Andrew Veivers is your man.
Andrew will play his original compositions as well as the works of the Spanish masters (and tell the stories behind them) when he plays the Bangalow Catholic Hall next Wednesday, October 10.
From the beginning, Andrew combined the traditional study of flamenco with the formal training of the classical guitar. After graduating with a Bachelor of Music in 1993 from the University of Queensland, he spent three years studying, teaching and performing in London, Madrid and Amsterdam.
He released recordings, played around the globe and worked with various festivals and companies to produce innovative flamenco and Spanish productions. (Andrew created the Flamenco Fire concept in 1999 and has continued to focus on the creative development of the production. With the support of the Australia Council for the Arts, Flamenco Fire's 2010 production, Al-Andaluz, was his first commissioned work.)
Check out the maestro from 7.30pm. Tickets are $20 pre-sale from www.kupromotions.com.au. Or $25 at the door (if any left).
