Vicente Amigo 2016 U.S. Tour in Washington, D.C.

Vicente Amigo 2016 U.S. Tour in Washington, D.C.

A transcendent performer, composer and producer, award-winning guitarist Vicente Amigo comes to Washington D.C this march on his first major tour of the United States.

A transcendent performer, composer and producer, Vicente Amigo burst onto the major stages of flamenco while still a teenager. Since then, he has earned a shelf full of awards, including the Medalla de Oro al Mérito en las Bellas Artes, roughly Spain’s equivalent of the National Medal of Arts, in December 2015, as well as a Latin Grammy for Ciudad de Las Ideas (City of Ideas) in 2001.

A musician’s musician, Pat Metheny called him “The greatest guitarist alive.” While over the years he has performed before sold-out halls in places such as New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C and Chicago, this is his first major tour of the United States.

His most recent release, Tierra (2013), is an unexpected, fascinating blend of flamenco and Celtic music. The emphasis on this tour will be on flamenco, however, as he brings with him an ensemble comprising Añil Fernández, backing guitar; Paquito González, percussion (cajón); Rafael de Utrera, cante (vocals) and Ewen Vernal on bass. Also, flamenco dancer Choro (Antonio Molina) will join the group for performances in Miami, New York, Boston, Washington, D.C., Santa Cruz and San Francisco.
