Renowned flamenco guitarist returns to Eden with Highlights

Eduardo Niebla

The composer and virtuoso guitarist, Eduardo Niebla, is returning to two venues in Eden later this month as part of the Autumn Highlights Rural Touring season.

Known internationally for his “exquisite guitar playing” (The Guardian) and his amazing repertoire of “stunning flamenco jazz” (The Spectator), Eduardo combines the worlds of classical, world, pop and jazz music to create a spellbinding evening of passion, verve and fleet-fingered virtuosity.

Playing at Lazonby Village Hall on Thursday 26 September and Orton Market Hall on Saturday 28 September, he will be joined on stage by Matthew Robinson, Head of Guitar at the Junior Guildhall School of Music and Drama and a tutor/director of the National Youth Guitar Ensembles.

These performances promise to be magical evenings of amazing music from someone who is as used to performing in the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London and the Symphony Hall in Birmingham as he is to touring rural venues.

“Eduardo Niebla has performed at Orton Market Hall twice before,” says Sally Seed, volunteer Highlights promoter, “and it will be great to welcome him back again. His last concert here was in September 2005 so a return is overdue. I hope that those who have heard him play previously will come along again and maybe encourage others who’ve not tried a Highlights performance before to join them.”
